Most of us don’t want to be anywhere near sharks. But if you enjoy water sports, you may end up seeing a shark or two in the sea. There are things you can wear or do to protect yourself. The SharkStopper happens to be an interesting device that emits an acoustic signal that repels sharks up to 60 feet away (minimum protection of 20 feet).
You just need to wear this device below your knee, and you are set. Why that area? Sharks can attack in as little as 2 feet of water. SharkStopper automatically activates its sensors when you get in the water. It gives you peace of mind when you are spending time in water and keeps sharks safely away. It’s good for us humans and sharks.
This super interesting product is expected to be on Kickstarter in the near future. In the meantime, we encourage you to check the official website to learn more about the science and future goals of this project.
