The Chinese designer ZJ-DDG has dreamed up a snorkelling concept, offering an alternative to the outdated products that have dominated the market for so long.
Known as the D-Mask, it aims to transform the marine tourism industry with a few futuristic and techy additions, which of course includes a partnering app. ZJ-DDG designed the mask to cover the entire face which allows wearers to enjoy a 180-degree field view. The larger lens is perfect for the built-in display to project measurables including the depth, water pressure as well as the weather status.
The D-Mask can be used for snorkelling or combined with an oxygen mask for scuba diving. All the wearers need to do is set the coordinates before diving, which are recorded in the device to solve the problem of getting lost.
The device also has a lighting function to help divers view under water during bad weather as well as offer a helpful option for SOS. Other features include bone-conducting audio for two-way communications as well as listening to music. When good scenery is found underwater, divers can start camera mode to take a picture. Finally, the mask also features an APP can be downloaded to set playlists or export data.
