US Navy develops diving helmet with HUD

#2

I like it, now if I only I still enjoyed the Ocean’s depths.


#3

Looks too heavy to want to have on my head while diving.


#4

Just might keep your face a bit warmer, maybe.


#5

Yeah its got that going for it. I wonder how you switch between things displayed, if not touch a clunky button someplace?

Having air to insulate your face and head might be nice. I dive dry and wear a hood most of the time, so very little skin is exposed, but its still chilly.

Having used Diver Communications Systems in a few facemasks with integrated Regulator and mic set ups, I didn’t like that either. Not horrible but it’d take some getting used to. Not for recreational diving, anyways.


#6

But is the new helmet Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger?


#7

Probably costs that much.


#8

When I got certified in the old century, the instructor “hearing impaired signed” under water. To this day that is the best way I have ever seen to communicate while diving with others humans.


#9

I’m OK
Look at this
How Much Air You Got?
This Much Air!
Lets go Up!
Share Air! I’m fucked!

Pretty much all you need.

We did underwater recovery / salvage / welding / work / etc. Pleasure diving is a bit more relaxed than doing it for work. Therefore the need for more detailed communication is needed.


#11

They’re probably gonna make a lot of money on this, but not nearly that much.


#12

THIS IS AN ALERT FOR A TAUTOLOGY ALERT


#13

Thanks, I put you up for the “awesomely awesomeness” award today.


#14

Weld There
Scrape that
Get out of my way

the Diver comms stuff was used on some UW archaeology and survey work.


#15

The “voice of experience” speaks.


#16

Probably less than 10 hammers…


#17

Roger That!


#18

Signs.


#19

They’re blocking up the scenery, man.

Breaking my mind.


#20

Long hair freaky people probably can’t fit in that helmet.
