South Africa Trials ‘hi-tech Punch on the Nose’ to Repel Sharks

A Durban selected video:



South Africa has started testing a shark repellent electronic cable in Cape Town, in a hi-tech experiment aimed at protecting swimmers without harming the deadly sea predators. Researchers at KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board installed a 100-metre-long cable on Friday in a small bay in Cape Town that seeks to exploit the sharks’ super-sensitive nose. The technology has been developed by experts who invented a portable device called a “shark pod” that generates an electromagnetic field to protect scuba divers and surfers.
