FUTURE OF SPORTS

WHAT
An additional set of lungs for top athletes of the future. This sports wearable optimises oxygen levels by keeping the airflow constant, improving performance by a few percent.

WHY
With this project, Martin Sallières presents a lighter take on transhumanism. Machines don’t have to be a threat. Why not embrace their potential instead, with a non-invasive wearable?

HOW
It is still a concept, but it can be done: breathe the way birds do, with air sacs that allow a continuous and more efficient flow through the lungs. As the ultimate front-runners, eager to push themselves to the limit, athletes will be the perfect ones to test this new respiratory system for mankind.

QUOTE
The human body has reached its limits; transhumanism is part of our evolution.
