Fog is bad...mmmkay
I dive and that's gotta be the most ridiculous reasons they give why divers should use it. For example, "It requires training". Ok you know what? You better not even be diving if you haven't taken any training. Give me a break!
P.S.- I'm not trying to bag on your deal. Thanks for posting it I just think the people who made the product need to be hit over the head with a large stick.

seriously... i agree with Loki. If you don't know how to take off ur mask and clear it, you're gonna drown under there.... ;) keep the posts coming tho, mysterX! I still don't understand how u find all these places though.... maybe it's best that i don't...

I got my PADI Certification almost 30 years ago and I think it made perfect sense to me. There have been many times when I didn't want to remove and clear due to conditions. If done right this would be a handy item. I'm curious to see what their sample is like.

i dive and i think this is a pretty cleaver idea. Yeah you should know how to do it manually but this IS pretty cool.

As an instructor, I've seen some pretty crazy stuff and I think this one fits that category.
Last I checked spitting in you mask is cheaper.
And If you can't remember to spit in your mask before jumping in how would you remember to put your "magnet" in. And as someone who used to work in the industry I'll be honest, we'd be making fun of you with the crazy thing in your mask.
But seriously, I'd be worried about a diver trying to us this. Diving requires paying attention to may things including but not limited to: your buddy, your air supply, your location, not harming the environment. I can just picture someone stopping to try to fidget with this gizmo, looking at it going cross-eyed and float up to the surface because they are not paying attention to their buoyancy. Best-case scenario, they float away off the wreck/reef and the boat has to go pick them up and they look stupid again. Worst-case scenario, while they are floating up they mistakenly hold their breath and get an embolism. (PS Iím also a hyperbaric nurse, and that may sound far fetched, but believe me I've seen it all.)
