The Amphibian SCUBA diving simulator: Experiencing underwater worlds, virtually

The Amphibian SCUBA diving simulator, a research project from the MIT Media Lab, lets users experience the underwater world through a high presence virtual reality system. The system includes a motion platform, Oculus Rift head-mounted display, snorkel with sensors, leg-motion sensors, and gloves that enable motion detection, temperature simulation, and physical feedback of objects. Captured sensor data is fed into a processing unit that converts the users physical motion into virtual movement in the Oculus app.
