After years of development, finally the hoseless regulator has become a reality. Now your first stage and second stage regulators will no longer be connected by a hose, but rather by an ’invisible thread’!

"The system comprises a hoseless second stage and a box weighing approximately 0.5kg/1lb which has to be within 2m/6ft of the second stage. By means of an osmotic diffusion process which is currently being studied in more depth, the box delivers breathable gas directly to the second stage."

Awesome!
