Taiwan-based company Deepblu is leaving no stone unturned in its mission to bring the scuba diving world onto the cloud and into the sharing economy, and one of its latest offerings is Planet Deeblu, a booking platform that is being billed as scuba diving's answer to Uber or Airbnb.
Scuba diving is an activity that quickly becomes addictive, but the fact of the matter is that planning a scuba dive trip is an arduous process that involves tons of research, price comparisons and emailing back-and-forth.
This is where Planet Deepblu comes in. The platform allows divers to directly communicate with dive schools and operators rather than going through agencies, which allows for significant savings as well more convenient booking.
What's more, the Planet Deepblu platform also integrates dive logs, multimedia and social media material from Deepblu's 'COSMIQ+' dive computer, making this a fine example of the sharing economy intersecting with social media and cloud technology to offer an enhanced experience to outdoor enthusiasts, in this case scuba diving addicts.
