??? What kind of safety equipm. is Ricardo talking about in his article, the patended ones the industry is not giving us??? Why can`t he describe it more detail: what`s the secret and hushing all about?
What can possibly save us from swb when diving alone / and/or swb at 10m, that is the l"ights is put out" without warning?

I\m just wondering? Anywone/someone out there why got this/understand more than me?...

Computer+life jacket

a lot of people have been thinking/working on a dive computer that would be link to an inflatable life vest. You then set-up the computer to trigger the life jacket after 2 minutes, or if you do not press a button every 30 sec after a given time, or if you release a device your suppose to keep in your hand all the time (i.e. go inconscious)

One good free trick is to open your weight belt when coming up and hold it with your hand, this way, if you BO, the belt will fall and you'll go up. Just make sure someone is waiting for you.
