Snokar

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

Snokar is a snorkel that incorporates AR technology and aims to improve ocean health by increasing people's interest in the marine ecosystem and encouraging action to protect the environment. Snokar has three functions to solve the marine waste problem. First, it automatically scans for ocean litter so that the user can easily notice it and collect it. Secondly, when the user encounters a sea creature while snorkeling, information about the animal is displyed on the lenses as augmented reality, teaching the user about the creature. Thirdly, Snokar provides marine protection guidelines to prevent snorkelers from damaging the ecosystem.

It is a really cool idea to integrate AR into snorkling goggles.
Jury-Statement
Snokar is the result of our thinking about how to connect AR technology to environmental protection. It is an honor to be awarded for a design that has a positive impact on the Earth, and we will continue to design solutions for sustainable society and the environment.
