    Sea of Tranquility – Snorkeling VR by Pierre Friquet

    During the World XR Forum this year in Crans Montana I helped Pierre Friquet with his Sea of Tranquility VR Experience. This VR experience was unique in that it required you to be either in your swimming clothes, your underwear or other. This was a VR experience where you went from being outside where the […]

  • Shark Reporting.

    In the age of drones this is how shark reporting should be done. The Coast guard or local surfing schools should fly a drone around and check to see whether there are any sharks present.

  • How PADI divers see an over-romanticised side of diving

      Whilst it is true that divers are at the beach every weekend the location is not quite that nice. Some of us are or were in the mountains every Saturday and in the lakes every Sunday. We did have to wear shoes because the dive site is a lake. We don’t all drink beer […]

  • Birth of a regulator

    Birth of a Regulator – Commercial Film for Apeks from Scarlet View Media on Vimeo.   I was curious to watch part of the process. i am more and more tempted to start diving again but I think without being too technical. I think I need to return to recreational, non challenging dives.

  • A temptation to go diving.

    It makes me want to go diving again. Now that summer is over the lakes should be better. Visibility should have improved.
