Results that Akwatyx commercializes include a connected device named Dolphyn, a web multisided platform and applications that are aimed to digitalize aquatic activities practiced in swimming pools, beaches and sea surfaces and transform these spaces into interactive multimedia playgrounds, for entertainment, education, relaxation and discovery.
This offer targets millions of persons around the world that practice aquatic activities and introduces a disruptive technology associating, for the first time, water immersion with multimedia immersion.
It extends to two global and growing markets - tourism and health & well-being. It mobilises digital technologies in aquatic activities thanks to the Dolphyn, a connected, submersible, mobile console working in a dedicated network, monitored and coordinated from a central multisided web platform.
As a result, bathers, swimmers, snorkelers and divers will be able to practice aquatic activities remaining connected to internet and getting the same services they get on land with their smart phones: WiFi, social networks, videos, applications, GPS, sound, access to data basis, games, e-learning...

Virtual Dive has been at the forefront of diving innovation in France in the past several years, and constantly demonstrate leadership in innovation regarding applying digital technologies to scuba-diving. I'm always curious about what they will come up with next!

Bernard Shepherd Global technical leader - Transportation at ghd

I would like to wholeheartedly recommend the VirtualDive technology which has the capacity to completely change the way the way we are connected to and have knowledge of the world’s oceans. For example, in Australia the Great Barrier Reef is suffering because it seems remote from our everyday lives and the ongoing deterioration is somehow theoretical and removed from our day to day concerns. VirtualDive can dramatically change this situation by bringing to all internet users a continuous update of what is happening on and to the Reef. Suddenly it would be part of our everyday life and the voices for action would be magnified and directed to the politicians who make the decisions. This is democracy in action. Alain Dinis is to be congratulated on the huge potential for great outcomes in the application of VirtualDive technology.

I follow the Virtual Dive projects probably since day one, I see opportunities for the different solutions and applications that are being developped.
They will be great interactive tools to connect divers with the public for a closer appraoch to underwater life.
The underwater image transfer applications will provide new opportunities to create divers and contribute to the diving industry, and recreational diving tourism future..

I have been in touch with Alain Dinis since several years and could follow his projects all along. I have to say that his visions are certainly there to provide the World another perspective of the underwater World and I am sure that it will not remain a vision but a reality. So many applications of this project could be implemented just in order to also bring the people closer to the water element.

Stephane LEPETIT

From now on several years we collaborate with the company Virtual Dive on the Project Dolphyn by realizing the essential elements of the DOLPHYN (hulls, window and certain elements interns of the system as well as the paints) and by bringing our knowledge in injection.
Our company(society) specialized in the Fast prototyping 3D Prototypes realizes models of displays and functional ( I3DP@orange.fr).

Our collaboration with the company VIRTUAL DIVE is for us main part, the innovation of the DOLPHYN and for us a certainty that he(it) is going to revolutionize the world of her(it) plunged and a lot of other agreement.

The DOLPHYN is also going to bring a lot in the aquatic world in the next years......

John Kinsella Employee at VIRTUALDIVE

I have come to Alain well over the past few years and followed the Virtual Dive project with interest and enthusiasm. Alain is a creative and energetic entrepreneur and his vision to bring an immersive experience of the underwater world to everyone with internet access is significant and important. Virtual Dive's technology does precisely that and it is poised to bring the wonder and vitality of the aquatic environment to a mass audience in a genuinely participative way. I wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend Alain and Virtual Dive.
