Excellent! I was reading about people who're building under-water homes, and one of the problems of getting to and from them's because of the time-consuming job of having to use and take off diving equipment at the start and end of each trip. They were also concerned about deeper builds, which might give divers the bends when re-surfacing, so this might be one way of eradicating that.

I vaguely recall a few years ago seeing a picture of a rabbit in a box (walls were see-through like glass), which was underwater, and this was meant to be made of a material which would exchange the carbon dioxide breathed out by the rabbit for oxygen from the water. I have become increasingly dubious about this, and I reckon it was probably one of those things that newspapers produce on 1st April each year!

It's actually true forgetfultel.

We used a similar type of product for packaging certain produce to extend its shelf-life.
Another to evacuate acetylene gas put off by some fruits.

The main problem with the poor bunny rabbit underwater is, it needs more than the evacuation of carbon dioxide and influx of oxygen. Other toxic gasses will build up the material used cannot evacuate.

Even the aqualung thing is far from working as expected. Too much oxygen is poisonous also!
