This cartoon-like diving helmet will likely prove to be extremely useful for diving and military operations.

The helmet was developed by an Underwater Systems team in the Navy and features a Divers Augmented Vision Display which is a "high resolution, see through head-up display." The display will allow divers to see sonars, texts, images and videos -- meaning that communication when underwater will be improved and will make for safer and more efficient underwater missions.

The diving helmet could have many potential applications in the military, including "ship husbandry, underwater construction and salvage operations." The applications do not stop there since technology such as this could help pave the way for similar technologies in industries such as fishing, marine science and even diving adventures.
