THE EVOLUTION OF BOB

For thousands of years man has shown an inborn need to explore, conquer, and experience the unknown.

Decades before the first weighted boot was stamped upon the moon, divers had been delving into fear defying depths below the ocean waves.

First there were diving bells with surface supplied air, then scuba, and now BOB™. It's the evolution of diving.

Back in the 16th century people began to use diving bells supplied with air from the surface. This was probably the first effective means of staying under water for any length of time. The bell was held stationary, its bottom open to water and its top portion containing air compressed by the water pressure. The diver standing upright would have his head in the air. He could stay until the air in the bell was no longer breathable due to carbon dioxide build-up.

The same principals from this age-old method have been used in the design of BOB™. The diver places their head and shoulders into the air filled acrylic dome. To overcome the problem of carbon dioxide build-up, air from a scuba tank constantly refills the dome with new compressed air. BOB™ takes the advantages of the old style helmet diving (no regulator or mask and 180 degree vision) but none of the disadvantages.

There have been many steps in the evolution of diving and many great inventions, but the major breakthrough came in the guise of SCUBA (Self-Contained-Underwater-Breathing-Apparatus). Using fin power the diver has freedom to move about and discover the underwater realms without interference of surface supplied air. Open circuit SCUBA is the mode most common in recreational diving, expelling the expired air into the water creating bubbles and avoiding carbon dioxide build-up.

The combination of the advantages of both the diving bell and scuba systems saw the birth of BOB™. BOB™ was born in 1991 when British inventor Andrew Sneath started tinkering with the idea.
