YAMAGATA, Japan, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Yamagata Casio Co., Ltd., a manufacturing subsidiary of Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced on November 13 that it has applied technologies accumulated through the production of Casio products to develop an underwater transceiver that lets users enjoy spoken conversation when scuba diving. Casio will display a prototype of the new Logosease dive transceiver at the Diving Equipment and Marketing Association Show 2012 in Las Vegas, the U.S.A., from November 14.
The Logosease is a transceiver that allows users to have spoken conversations underwater, revolutionizing the diving experience by solving the problem of communication limited to written signs and basic hand signals. With the Logosease, which is small enough to fit into a pocket and attach to the strap of a diving mask, divers can converse normally with the scuba regulator in their mouths. Since a full-face mask or any other type of special equipment is unnecessary, the Logosease lets leisure divers converse with ease.
-- Built-in digital speech conversion technology
-- Compact size with waterproof performance up to 180 feet
* Underwater voiced speech varies depending on the person and/or surrounding conditions. Yamagata Casio does not guarantee that the Logosease will deliver audible and comprehensible underwater speech.
