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.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.
