VirtualDive has been at the forefront of diving innovation in France in the past several years, and constantly demonstrate leadership in innovation regarding applying digital technologies to scuba-diving. I'm always curious about what they will come up with next!

I follow the Virtual Dive projects probably since day one, I see opportunities for the different solutions and applications that are being developed. They will be great interactive tools to connect divers with the public for a closer approach to underwater life. The underwater image transfer applications will provide new opportunities to create divers and contribute to the diving industry, and recreational diving tourism future.

I have been in touch with Alain Dinis since several years and could follow his projects all along. I have to say that his visions are certainly there to provide the World another perspective of the underwater World and I am sure that it will not remain a vision but a reality. So many applications of this project could be implemented just in order to also bring the people closer to the water element.

“The visionary objective of Digital Ocean is to “open, to billions of people worldwide, access to ocean depths, at anytime, anywhere thanks to Information Technologies such as online collaborative platform, Virtual Reality, simulation and serious gaming ”.

VirtualDive has developed among the Digital Ocean project a set of software solutions that allow the diving community to collaborate online in editing interactive virtual representations of diving sites based on real 3D bathymetrical data and enriched with scientific and multimedia information.

Those solutions are very interesting for PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) as our organization is the world’s leading scuba diving training organization and is involved in environmental missions with the Project AWARE Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving underwater environments through education, advocacy and action”.
