The DIVEVOLK Diving Assistant is here to turn your smartphone into an underwater video camera at any depth. Until now, using a smartphone underwater has been mostly out of reach, at least for any real length of time. But the DIVEVOLK is changing all of that by providing divers with a way to take their smartphone into the deep blue sea.


The device is a wearable system that provides technology to make your smartphone sea-compatible. It uses a combination of waterproof touchscreens, strobes, headphones and an app to give you an immersive underwater experience you can share with your friends. The SeaTouch touchscreen gives you full access to your phone’s screen operations without compromising integrity or sensitivity. The EasySeal design wraps around your smartphone to provide an impenetrable barrier between the phone and the ocean.


DIVEVOLK also offers dual lenses. The first lens is packed with anti-reflective coating to allow for excellent light transmittance underwater, while the selfie lens makes it easy to take incredible photos of yourself mingling with sea life. The synchronous flash technology lets you use the strobe for a distance of up to 70 centimeters away. The synchronous flash allows you to eliminate backscatter specks, blotches and spots that normally appear in underwater photos. Finally, the high-fidelity underwater headphone works at depths of up to 50 meters, offering high performance sound deep in the sea.


The accompanying app also offers an array of safety features, including a dive computer, and SPG alarm, and water surface calls. The DIVEVOLK Diving Assistant currently retails on Indiegogo for $215. Check out the website for more information on features and how to order.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

The Redneck Games

One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.
