Scientists have found a completely functional underwater lamp that they say will be “world’s first completely functional, completely natural, non-flammable and non-degradable” underwater lamp.
The researchers, who were not affiliated with the University of California, San Diego, said they have developed the prototype “to be an important stepping stone in the development of a more affordable and efficient system to create underwater lighting” as they are planning to expand the program to the US and Canada, as well as other nations.
They described the lamp as “a high-performance, low-power, low heat-resistance, low temperature-recovery lamp that utilizes water as its primary material for lamp components.”
The team of scientists, led by Dr. Eric Hickey of the University in Colorado Springs, say they hope to eventually build the lamp, which has been built on a “sandbar, sand substrate, and a layer of sand,” but it has already been tested with a “durable, fully functional, nonflammable, noncorrosive, nonflammant, nondegradent” bamboo floor.”
The result is a high-efficiency, low cost, and low-energy source of light that can be applied to a wide variety of applications in the marine, underwater, and space industries.”

This is a very exciting time to be a scientist.
There are many exciting opportunities to be involved in research and development.
And the opportunity is now.
We need to get it out into the world as quickly as possible, and get it done in a safe and ethical manner,” Hickey said.
The team hopes to have the lamp in operation by 2020, with the goal of commercial production by 2021.
The company, called R&D Lighting, announced the new lamp on Monday, with a teaser video showing how it is made.”
We are thrilled to share the news of the discovery of a prototype of a fully functional underwater lighting lamp.
The light is powered by water and is composed of a single, low power, high temperature-resistant, low toxicity, low carbon footprint (CO 2 ) material,” the company said in a statement.”
This technology is extremely innovative, inexpensive, and environmentally friendly, and the ultimate tool for underwater illumination and underwater sensing applications.
“The company’s CEO, Scott McLean, said the lamp’s design is based on “an incredibly simple concept.””
The water is placed on a bamboo substrate that is covered in a layer (of sand), and then the bamboo is covered with an insulating layer of plastic, which insulates the bamboo and provides a high temperature barrier to the water,” McLean said.”
The lamp is then heated by the surface of the bamboo substrate to produce a light output of between 100 watts and 150 watts, depending on the surface area of the surface and the ambient temperature.
“McLean said the team is working with an “extremely experienced team of underwater scientists, who are now working to perfect the manufacturing process.
“He said the company is working on building a prototype, but declined to provide a price for the device.”
There is no estimate for how long this project may take.
But we believe this is the first time this has been done in the history of our company,” Mclean said.
He said R&S Lighting plans to release a patent application for the lamp by 2021 and expects to release an initial commercial product by 2021 or 2022.
The group has received a number of awards from the US government, including an award from the U.S. Navy for its “First in the World” project, which awarded $2.5 million for the research.
The company also received a $1 million grant from the Navy Science Center in Annapolis, Maryland.
R&S Lights is based in Colorado.
