Abstract (Swedish)
THIS MASTER THESIS is about making diving more accessible. The experience
of diving is today relying on a complex set of equipment and infrastructure,
thus most people with a certificate seldom use it.

My intention is to evolve diving equipment, which has looked the same since
the sixties, and by doing that simplifying the experience of diving. The goal
is to create a solution positioning itself between the full scuba diving experience and the simplicity of snorkeling.

Safety is an important factor and needed to be kept high on the agenda.
That prerequisite, along with other prerequisites of being under water, led
to several very clear possibilities and constrains. One being the maximum
depth of 10 m, which led to a tank size... (More)

Safety is an important factor and needed to be kept high on the agenda.
That prerequisite, along with other prerequisites of being under water, led
to several very clear possibilities and constrains. One being the maximum
depth of 10 m, which led to a tank size of 3,5 l, allowing for a dive time of
around 20 min.

My focus has been on creating a viable, feasible and desirable solution that
should be able to be produced and successfully launched today. Therefore
I focused on keeping the infrastructure intact, while innovating the BCD,
the hub of the equipment. By simplifying that single product in the chain of
equipment, a completely new nisch for scuba diving is created. (Less)
