An invisibility wet suit for sharks camouflages swimmers against the deadly predator, possibly preventing even the next Sharknado.
Oh, actually, Sharknado 2 is already in the works.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the girl who was sliced in half by a shark could have used the sharks invisibility suit.
The invisibility wet suit for sharks works by camouflaging a swimmer’s body and even tricks sharks into thinking the surfers are poisonous animals. The blue Elude shark invisibility wet suit is blue, or ocean, toned and uses sharks’ color blindness against them. The Diverter shark invisibility wet suit mimics a poisonous fish that has black and white stripes.
While sharks are known to rely heavily on their sense of smell, the creators of the shark invisibility wet suit considered how sharks rely heavily on their vision to plan whether to attack or not. Shark Attack Mitigation Systems (SAMS), the creator of the shark camouflage wet suits, claim the sharks will still be able to smell or sense the swimmers in the water, but the camouflage patterns should hopefully help prevent shark attacks:
“We are using a lot of nature’s technology, based on high-contrast-based banding patterns. The wearer will be obvious, and the idea is the shark will see that as an unpalatable food item and swim right by…. By disrupting the sharks visual perception, an attack can either be diverted altogether, or at least delayed, allowing time for evasive action.”
The shark invisibility wet suits cost about $392 each on pre-order. Shark Attack Mitigation Systems also sells matching surfboards with the camouflage patterns as well as stickers for other watercraft.
