Interactive and connected aquatic console
An underwater computer for geolocalized data acquisition, Augmented Reality exploration and live video-streaming
The Akwatyx console DOLPHYN® is a product patented by VIRTUALDIVE. It is the first worldwide mobile aquatic console with cutting edge technology, integrating a camcorder and a video gaming console. It integrates a 10,1 inch tablet PC, a Wi-Fi antenna, a GPS, a HD webcam, joysticks as well as other types of sensors. Aquatic and digital environments are merged and therefore, constitutes a unique immersive universe. The advent of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), underwater devices, Internet of Things and Augmented Reality offer new opportunities to discover the oceans in an interactive and fun way or simulate underwater multi-sensory exploration in the heart of swimming pools.
