Shark Deterrent Wet Suits -
If you’re ever in Los Angeles during a shark invasion, you might want to wear this suit.
An Australian research firm launched a wetsuit that researchers say will deter shark attacks, using new discoveries about the animal’s eyesight, reports the Agence France-Presse.
Working with the University of Western Australia’s Oceans Institute, research firm Shark Attack Mitigation Systems (SAMS) developed two wetsuits to protect surfers and divers from the toothy predators.
"It’s based on new breakthrough science which is all about visionary systems for predatory sharks," Craig Anderson, of SAMS, told AFP. "We’ve been able to interpret that science and convert that into, basically, materials that create some confusion for sharks’ visual systems."
According to research conducted, sharks are colorblind and perceive light differently. The “Elude” line of wetsuits is designed to “hide” divers and snorkelers in the water column, according to Anderson.

Research also shows that sharks are repelled by food items with black and white banding, as they are often perceived as “unpalatable,” researcher Shaun Collin.
