Checking the Internet While Diving

from the March, 2017 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

If you're sick of seeing people with their attention fixed on their phones, it could get worse! The Alltab underwater tablet is said to be fully operational underwater, and when connected to the outside world using Allhub, it's possible to get Internet and GPS connection even while scuba diving. It's said to bring data collection and underwater navigation into the 21st Century!

That's the promise made by the Finnish manufacturer Alleco, with sales to professional and military customers (including diving instructors) expected through Aqua Lung International. It features a maximum operating depth between 290 ft (90m) and 485 ft (150m) according to the specific model and includes an 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. For underwater photography, they recommend the use of an external action camera that can be connected wirelessly underwater if placed close to the tablet. No price has yet been fixed, but by going to you can request a quote. It's bound to be expensive. On the other hand, some of us might have taken up diving for some therapeutic peace and quiet!
