Synchro / Scuba diving


Synchro is a new regulator which can prevent a diver’s death; designed based on the analysis of individual breathing patterns.

There are a number of unexpected situations that can occur when you explore submarine areas. In particular, panic attack or panic disorder is a common situation. Even small trigger can cause bigger problems.

This project is about how to efficiently understand the breathing patterns of a diver to minimize potential risk of death. This can be accomplished by giving feedback to the diver by making them aware of their current breathing pattern, and warning them of any change by comparing with normal breath patterns.
