KICO / Diving fins


Today, coral reefs are facing the danger of extinction. physical touching can cause large damage to coral reefs. And one large part of the physical damage from divers comes from fins' sweeping or kicking because divers can hardly notice that their fins are too close to reefs. KI-CO can warn snorkelers that they are too close to coral reefs, which can help save coral reefs.
