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.

Photos Are Always Funnier When You Add a Caption (31 pics)

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
