Scubus S : The World’s First Augmented Reality Scuba Diving Mask

We have a great submission, it’s an augmented reality scuba diving mask that allows a diver to communicate with other team members easier. You can read detail description below in the designer’s own words.


From the very beginning we had a vision for the world’s first augmented reality scuba diving mask which by itself is one of a kind already. But we didn’t want to stop there. Since most of our team members are scuba diving enthusiasts we are well aware of how limited underwater communication is. It boils down to hand signals that scuba divers have to learn and use in order to communicate. It’s far from perfect and sometimes it can be pretty challenging.


For example you can mix up or forget the signs, the other divers can misinterpret them and besides to communicate you have to be in eye contact. Alright so we have an augmented reality mask that enables scuba divers to chat underwater, right?


Well not exactly.

You see from a software standpoint it’s not a problem. On the other hand from technical side it is quite a challenge. When you go underwater the Bluetooth, radio waves or any other wireless technology doesn’t work that well or doesn’t work at all. But way before Bluetooth was invented enormous machines were already navigating and communicating underwater – the submarines. The submarines use the acoustic wave as means of communication and so do we in our Scubus S.


As it turns out the acoustic wave travels underwater even better than it does on the surface. For the navigation through our augmented reality scuba diving mask we’re going to have wearable joystick that you put on your hand. So regarding “chat” option. Of course it’s not going to be the typical chat experience one might imagine typing loads of messages in a free form.

But you’re going to have up to 20 pre-typed messages similar to SMS. You’re not going to be able to write anything you want, but you will be able to send messages like “Emergency! Help me now!” or “Take picture of me!” and it will appear in a chat window of the heads-up display of other divers. It’s also worth to mention that ability to “chat” like that will be limited in distance – up to 100m/300feet.

Tag Ring : Minimalist GPS Ring To Track Its Wearer’s Location

Tag Ring is a concept GPS ring that can be connected to your smartphone/tablet to track its wearer’s position. It’s a smart ring that could be a perfect companion when you are on adventures or you can attach it on your pet’s collar. The design is pretty much simple since it functions mainly as GPS tracker, so there are no notifications/alerts or whatsoever that could distract you from doing whatever you’re doing. It’s also a perfect device that children can wear so that parents can always track their location.

Detroit Electric SP:01 Sports Car Could Be World’s Fastest Production Electric Sports Car in 2015

Detroit Electric has revealed its striking concept sports car design called SP:01. It features pure electric 2-seater sports car, the company claims that this will be the world’s fastest production electric sports car in 2015. It was revealed as a prototype at 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, the new design now has subtle update to further improve the car’s aerodynamic performance.


One of striking element that attracts people’s attention is the bold new fastback configuration, it replaces the prototype’s flying buttresses on either side of the rear window. Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), the exterior body is optimized to create better airflow, thus, reducing turbulence for better performance and stability. That large sculptural rear wing as well as an under-body diffuser have been designed to reduce lift and improve downforce at higher speeds. The front air intake and outlet ducts on the bonnet are reshaped to provide better airflow to the HVAC system.

This car is powered by battery packs which is housed in protective composite casing as part as the vehicle’s structure. It improves SP:01’s torsional rigidity and provides an extremely robust barrier that protects those batteries from punctures in the event of accident. The high power motor is able to propel the car to an impressive 155mph or 249 km/h top speed, from 0 to 60mph time in just 3.7 seconds.
