Having been reserved for deep diving enthusiasts and military divers in the past Swedish based Poseidon is now bringing Rebreathers to the sports diving market. This fully automatic unit, the Mk VI Discovery, is touted to be plug and play. “It is like a modern car, electronics handle brakes, stabilizing systems and all other gizmos to make driving safer,” says the manufacturer. Using state of the art electronics and sensor technology it is designed to provide the sports diver with all the benefits of rebreathers without the current drawbacks. Safer diving with less risk of decompression sickness, no bubbles and quieter to allow you to experience the marine life up close and longer dives meaning never having to ascend before your buddies again. An added bonus is that, sans tanks, it is light enough for travel.
