The rebreather product is a quarter-sized disc of polymer film that changes from blue to yellow in a reversible and predictable way when exposed to CO2. A white LED light illuminates the disc from a sealed pot below that houses the electronics. Then, a digital meter reads the color, which is converted to the CO2 level.
