Here's something divers can appreciate: A device that enables the user to text message others while underwater.
Now I know what you're thinking, and that was my first reaction too. Why in the world would anyone need to send a text message while exploring a coral reef?
But this sort of technology does have its perks. For instance, say a diver miscalculates and suddenly finds himself running low of air.
Not only does the underwater digital interface allow a diver to call for help, it also has the capacity to link up to 56 divers to units on boats or land.
Not such a wacky idea after all. Plus you could text your sustainable fish inquiries without ever having to leave the water.
