Shark deterrent system for surfers
A new electronic shark deterrent system has just been released by Shark Shield. The Shark Shield Surf protects surfers by generating an electrical field which causes sharks to go into muscular spasms thus deterring them from coming near. However, once the shark leaves the area, there is no lasting detrimental effect to the shark. The device creates an elliptical field that surrounds the user with a shark safe zone that is up to eight meters in diameter. The Shark Shield Surf is powered by a seven hour plus rechargeable lithium-ion battery and costs $696.
