The NBT: Shark Suit


Scott: Welcome back to the dance party! We are here at the Harlem School of the Arts and you are listening to the Fat Afro Latin Jazz Cats. They do sound nice, don’t they? They do sound nice!

Now it is time to get back to business. And it is time for the Next Big Thing. Now let’s see what you thought about last week’s. We told you about Sole Power, a device that uses the power generated from walking to charge things like cell phones and iPods.

But is it the next big thing? Ninety-one percent of you said, ‘Yes, let’s walk and talk!’ But nine percent of you said, ‘Nope. I am walking away from this one.’

Hey! Now, this week, I don’t know about you but sharks make me a little nervous. We have got something that might – just might – keep you covered.

Scientists from the University of Western Australia say they have found a way to keep you safer if what you are worried about is becoming a shark’s next lunch.

Anderson: Even though you’re perceived, you’re not perceived as a meal.

Scott: The wetsuit is designed to make the wearer invisible to the shark by looking like a wave in the ocean, or at least unappetizing. Although the wet suit is not completely shark-proof, its creators say the results are extraordinary, and that the effect is mental as well as physical.

Is the shark suit really the next big thing? Well, head over to and weight in.
