Underwater Station: Virtual Porthole

Virtual Porthole inside the Underwater StationHere is an idea for a porthole where the structure of the underwater station does not allow to install one. For example on the ceiling, where penetrations of the shell should be strictly avoided in order to maintain the integrity of the emergency safety area in the upper part of the living area. The Virtual Porthole would consist of a camera on the exterior of the shell and a TV flat screen on same position inside the habitat. Continue reading “Underwater Station: Virtual Porthole”

We would like to thank all of you for the numerous suggestions, ideas and contributions so far. There are very useful hints and clues among them and we will go on to implement them to the separate chapters and publish them on this website as they come in. Beside we continue holding talks to representatives of various sectors, trying to find out who could have practical use of an undersea station or even invest on them. All of these conversations are positive.  Literally all of them regard the idea as stunning, useful and innovative.

However, beside all moral support every project needs to be financed. Therefore, we are still looking for supporters who help us…

  • with small financial amounts to keep the project alive,
  • with equipment or single components (for example for the urgently needed computer system capable of 3D rendering),
  • with higher financial amounts for construction of the first stage

If you would like to become part in a new step of undersea living do not hesitate to contact us. Every support is welcome.

OAR/National Undersea Research Program (NURP)The Tektite habitat was an underwater laboratory which was the home to divers during Tektite I and II programs. The Tektite program was the first scientists-in-the-sea program sponsored nationally. The habitat capsule was placed in Great Lameshur Bay, Saint John, U.S. Virgin Islands in 1969 and again in 1970.

Kemer Underwater Guide

UW Guide KemerIn 2007 we completed the interactive underwater guide for Kemer/Turkey including the regions Antalya City, Beldibi, Göynük, Kemer, Kiriş, Çamyuva, Tekirova (incl. the Environmental Park ‘3 Islands’) and Adrasan. The project was sponsored by ANEX Tour and Club Magic Life and used on various fairs as a promotion tool for the scuba diving tourism. By being programmed in HTML the guide was compatible with all computer systems. Continue reading “Kemer Underwater Guide”

Nemo’s Garden Project by OCEAN REEF

Portulaca_sativa_01 © Wikimedia Commons, User: BurschikGrowing plants in the undersea station will be very difficult. But the experiment below brought the following question to my mind: If the site of the station would be the Mediterranean, which is a subtropical environment, then the main season would be the summertime. During that period many crops would not grow due to sunlight intensity and heat. The project in the video might be an alternative to use the seawater as a light filter and cooling medium. Would it be worth to investigate?
