The mission of Open The Oceans is to ignite curiosity, passion and lifelong learning by diving into the deep. One of the fundamental challenges we face in exciting humans about the ocean is that it is difficult to visit and see the wonders of the ocean with our own eyes.
Our goal is to create a system that will allow us to create a “DiveView” experience much like Google’s StreetView suitable for creating Virtual Reality (VR) submersible dive. We plan to use DiveView videos to document our dive activities and increase engagement for our stakeholders.
Our challenge for the day is to create a simple 360 degree time-lapse camera capable of collecting imagery for 5-6 hours. We need help from students in all disciplines (both STEM as well as creative/design folks) to solve this problem. Come join us and hack the future!
