Breathing like a fish

An Israeli Inventor has developed a breathing apparatus that will allow breathing underwater without the assistance of compressed air tanks. This new invention will use the relatively small amounts of air that already exist in water to supply oxygen to both scuba divers and submarines. The invention has already captured the interest of most major diving manufacturers as well as the Israeli Navy.

Pretty interesting stuff. Slashdot has a more indepth discussion about the technology by people who obviously know mroe about scubadiving than I do.
