BLU3 launches ‘world’s smallest’ dive system

BLU3, a subsidiary of Brownie’s Marine Group, has launched what it calls the next generation of diving on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.

NEMO is a compact surface-supplied air (SSA) dive system that supports one diver to 10 feet – bridging the gap between snorkeling and SCUBA diving, according to BLU3.

Inside NEMO’s buoyant foam and tube is a custom battery-powered air compressor. The compressor pumps air to the diver through the 10-foot hose and out through NEMO’s patented smart regulator, all powered by a single battery. The lithium ion battery pack has a three-hour charge time and can be replaced for all-day diving.

BLU3 is a subsidiary of Brownie’s Marine Group.

According to BLU3, the goal is to make the sport of diving more accessible in an effort to increase awareness of the world’s underwater environments.

“The more people who experience the underwater world, the more people that might help protect it,” stated Blake Carmichael, founder and CEO of BLU3.

NEMO’s biggest draw is portability: The product spans less than 12 inches on all sides – about the size of a two-slice toaster – and weighs about 10 pounds.

According to the company, fans of the product have expressed anticipation of NEMO for use in various ways – from treasure hunting and pool entertainment to aquatic therapy and boat maintenance.

“Whether you’re an ocean explorer, poolside parent, treasure hunter, underwater photographer, boat owner, or in search of the latest yacht toy – NEMO is for you,” said inventor John Colborn.
