Oceanic Worldwide and DiveNav, Inc. announce the upcoming launch of the eDiving® scuba diving simulator for the Oceanic Datamask. The popular Oceanic Datamask is easily one of the most progressive advances in diving technology and this simulator helps show how simple the product is to use.

The latest release of eDiving will also include an interactive virtual dive site designed to teach divers how to program and use the DataMask in various scenarios. A video demo may be seen now at www.OceanicWorldwide.com.

“The Datamask is clearly a revolutionary product”, said Alberto Mantovani, President and CEO of DiveNav, “and we are honored to have collaborated with Oceanic, one of the most innovative companies in the scuba industry, to add the Datamask to our eDiving® scuba diving simulator. We are looking forward to future collaborations on new exciting projects,” he concluded.

The Datamask is a scuba diving mask that allows hands-free diving by integrating a fully featured advanced dive computer, a miniature liquid crystal display (LCD) and the Digital Optic System (DOS). The LCD panel allows divers to keep their eyes focused on the dive, while presenting critical dive data including: current depth, elapsed dive time, cylinder pressure, and dive time remaining. The DOS provides a clear, highly magnified image of the LCD, which is viewable regardless of environmental conditions and may be seen clearly by the vast majority of people, regardless of vision.

“We were quite impressed by the capabilities and the realism of the eDiving® scuba diving simulator,” said Doug Krause of Oceanic Worldwide. “The new features added in this latest version, makes eDiving and extremely valuable training aid,” he concluded.

eDiving® , developed by DiveNav, is a scuba diving simulator that allows scuba divers, snorkelers and marine enthusiasts to virtually explore real underwater locations. DiveNav has recently released a new version of eDiving that includes features such as multiplayer, Nitrox, dive planning, several types of gear, support for advanced dive computers and simulation of human body core temperature.
