Wet suit designed to protect from shark attacks

WESTERN AUSTRALIA (CBS46) -

Scientists at the University of Western Australia and designers at Shark Attack Mitigation Systems created a new wet suit to protect against shark attacks.

The technology was created in response to the growing incidence of shark attacks on the coast of West Australia.

Researchers have created two main designs to keep sharks at bay.

One design makes swimmers almost invisible to the predators.

The designs are based on the science of visual cues for shark attacks.
