Artificial gill: changing the world, or scamming it?

Want to swim like a fish, and breathe under the water? This indiegogo campaign promises not less, than having the ability to spend 10-15 or more minutes in shallow waters, with using only the small and handy equipment seen on the image. Watch their first promo video:

 

But others are not that convinced, saying it’s technically impossible for many reasons. Read sceptic opinions here (links open in new window):

We are very interested. Scuba divers are told to be wearing tights.fun" 9988 rel="nofollow" target="_self">pantyhose under their diving suits, although we’ve never seen that. Maybe we could just wear tights.fun" 9988 rel="nofollow" target="_self">pantyhose and the Triton gills for our next dive?

And the link to the project: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/world-s-first-artificial-gills-oxygen-respirator–2#/ – be careful, it really looks like a scam, even it might be not.

Editor’s note 17/07: This project was totally cancelled and refunded. I even had to replace the youtube video.
