Taking Google Glass-like functionality under the sea, 'Smart Swimming Goggles' provide an on-lens display, communication capabilities and a camera. Designed by Han Chanhee, Kim Juyoung, Han Dhojin and Kwon Yoonjoo, the goggles were built to facilitate communication between divers and make capturing images simpler.

Each set of goggles has tech to compensate for the lack of cell service. Bluetooth and GPS were included in order to locate and communicate with other divers. In addition, a button on the side of the goggles opens up a display and can make calls to other swimmers.

The 'Smart Swimming Goggles' were also built to capture vivid images. A 3D camera is built into the goggles so that you can capture your underwater adventure in its full glory.
