THETIS / Commercial Diver Simulator


Unlike recreational divers, commercial divers are always exposed to situations that may cause death or produce long-term disability due to the nature of the industrial environment.
I designed VR System to focus on the elements of "Team Play" between Diver and Tender(helper above surface) which actually have a huge impact on escaping dangerous situations.
To make realistic experience, THETIS HMD(head mounted display) mimics the same way of interaction as the actual commercial diving helmet. Therefore divers can interact with HMD physically and train for their proper emergency reaction.
