The Dielectric Thermal Drysuit, or “Biosuit”
The Dielectric Thermal Drysuit, or “Biosuit” is a multi-layer cold-water diving suit that has a special thermal gel sandwiched between its inner and outer layers. This gel generates heat through an electric current, controlled by an array of temperature sensors that increase or decrease the temperature of the gel anywhere in the suit.
The current is supplied by an attached power supply that will be carried on the diver’s body. The temperature and power is constantly monitored by a small computer and can be adjusted easily by the diver.
Problem this idea/invention addresses:
Prevents hypothermia and allows the wear stay alive in extremme cold water
