Surfing is cool, being eaten by a shark pretty much sucks. In case you're not a fan of being eaten alive, you might want to pay some attention to this new Shark Deterrent Wetsuit. Designers Hamish Jolly and Craig Anderson have teamed up with the University of Western Australia to create a wetsuit that will keep you safe from sharks in the water. Sharks are colorblind, so the team created a pattern that helps makes you either unpalatable or completely invisible to the fierce predators. The concept is to create confusion for the shark’s visual systems. While sharks do use other senses to track their prey, visual is the final stage before attacking. There are several different suits available, designed for specific activities. The blue and white Elude is created for divers, and the black and white (unpalatable color pattern) was created for surfers.
