Cruise Line Takes Snapchat Spectacles Underwater
Royal Caribbean created a special pair of goggles that allow divers to record and post ocean adventures with Snap Spectacles
Snap Spectacles are invading the water. Instead of taking a waterproof camera into the ocean, a diver can bring along a special pair of goggles called SeaSeekers, which allow the wearer to use a pair of Snap Spectacles while underwater. Cruise company Royal Caribbean International made 10 pairs of the goggles (so far) for their guests to use.
The SeaSeeker Mask allows a diver to do up to 30 minutes of underwater filming. Photos and video upload directly to the user’s Snapchat account for their followers to see.
For now, only guests at Royal Caribbean Mexico have the opportunity to give these goggles a try during their sea explorations. The first series of dives proved successful with the SeaSeekers, prompting Royal Caribbean to apply for a patent for their product.

Bertrand is a psychiatrist and balloonist that completed the first ever non-stop balloon flight around the globe with his partner Brian Jones. His most famous endeavor is Solar Impulse, a project launched in 2003 in collaboration with the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). The goal was to create a solar-powered, long-range aircraft, and in 2012, the aircraft operated by Piccard and Andre Borschberg made its first intercontinental flight from Morocco to Switzerland. Piccard is currently aiming to complete the first flight around the world on solar power alone, which commenced on March 9, 2015 and will span the course of five months.
