Talk to your BFF while you’re exploring the Titanic

oceanreef-uwcpThe next time you’re diving into the murky depths of the ocean, you can tell time with your 20000 FEET CX Swiss Military Watch and talk to your BFF with the OCEAN REEF UWCP Underwater cellular phone system. It’s a special interface box with a 40 meter cable that attaches to full face mask. You connect your own cellphone to the interface box, which inserts into an inflatable buoy. The price for the convenience of being able to order a pizza while under water will cost you a whopping $1790.

    I wonder how much more quickly a blabbermouth will run out of oxygen using one of these.

      @Steve I didn’t even think of that fact! 😉

    I’ve heard from other divers who have used just the full faced mask without the communication gear, that it uses substantially (25% to 30%) more air then a typical regulator and mask option. I don’t even want to think of what the air consumption is for someone on the phone!

    Personally, even though I am a gadget person, I LOVE being underwater and only hearing my own bubbles and the critters. I hope this particular technology does not take off. I can just see underwater being just as an obnoxious experience as the mall is now.
