Abstract [en]

300 million pictures are uploaded everyday on Facebook alone. We live in a society where photography, filming and self-documentation are a natural part of our lives. But how does it inflict on our experiences when we always are considering camera angles, filters and compositions? We might very well ruin the experiences we so badly want to save.

Scuba diving is a special experience. We enter a world with another space of movement, surroundings and animal life. An experience that can only be experienced for a limited time. An adventure one want to remember, save and share. But what implications does it have on ones experience if one also have to focus on documenting it?

JACQUES is a product that enables the diver´s to document their dive as a memory to re-experience later and share with others while still leaving them fully immersed in their diving experience. With relatively simple technology such as sonar and video object recognition Jacques can film the diver´s underwater adventure and adept to their behavior without the diver even noticing it. And by being focused on the actual dive one also becomes a better and safer diver.
