Scuba Sermo / Scuba Mask

Scuba Sermo
Scuba Sermo

The Scuba Sermo is a diving mask that provides recreational scuba divers with a form of visual communication. Status indicators on the front, sides, and back depict a diver’s condition. Green meaning good, blue that there is something of interest and red indicating a problem. The left side of the mask has the on/off button and the “look here” button which changes a diver’s status to blue and alerts others around of something important. The right side has the light and record button for the centrally mounted camera. A panic button, located at the forehead region, can be pressed when in trouble to alert those around that a diver has a problem.
