Underwater Transceiver-mini: Revolutionizing Underwater Communication

A Light, Wearable, and Affordable Transmission Device for Divers

As diving enthusiasts, Bao Sitong, Xiao Liyun, and Yan Fei were frustrated with the bulky and unreliable underwater communication devices available on the market. Determined to make a change, they designed the Underwater Transceiver-mini, a wireless transmission device that revolutionizes underwater communication for scuba divers.

The Underwater Transceiver-mini is a compact and lightweight device that ensures stable sound quality, providing divers with a more pleasant and immersive experience. Unlike conventional devices, this innovative transceiver is designed to be worn, allowing divers to communicate freely with others underwater.

One of the key strengths of the Underwater Transceiver-mini is its state-of-the-art signal processing and sensor technology. The device utilizes a 360° ring signal transmission system, ensuring reliable and premium real-time voice transmission. The casing material is heat and corrosion resistant, guaranteeing robust properties and improved sealing performance.

The design of the underwater unit is both simple and scientific, with solid polygonal lines that convey a sense of geometry and precision. The indicator ring not only reflects the visual identity of the brand but also provides a clear display of the device's status and the diver's position. The bite contact microphone features ripple patterns that enhance its dynamic effect, while the call button is designed to prevent sand jamming.

Technical specifications of the Underwater Transceiver-mini include overall dimensions of 122mm*91mm*71mm for the underwater unit, a dry weight of 170g, and a wet weight of 60g. The bite contact microphone has a dry weight of 155g and a wet weight of -230g. The device has a battery capacity of 650mAh, 3.7V, and a charging voltage of 15V/1A. It has a signaling transmission range of 75m and can operate at a maximum depth of 50m. The battery provides up to 4 hours of continuous use, and the device is designed to withstand temperatures ranging from 0 to 60 degrees Celsius.

Operating the Underwater Transceiver-mini is simple. Divers wear the device and press and hold the talk button on the bite contact microphone to initiate a real-time voice communication session. Releasing the button ends the session. The device also features a recording function, allowing divers to log their diving experiences and share them later. In case of a distress situation underwater, divers can activate the SOS call by pressing the dedicated button.

The Underwater Transceiver-mini project was initiated in early 2022 and is scheduled for volume production in April 2023. Throughout the design process, the team conducted extensive research to identify pain points in existing products and address them effectively. The result is a lightweight, portable, and reliable communication device that enhances the diving experience.

The Underwater Transceiver-mini has already received recognition for its innovative design. It was awarded the Bronze A' Design Award in the Communication Equipment, Devices, and Apparatus Design category in 2023. This prestigious award is bestowed upon designs that exhibit strong technical and creative skills, contributing to improvements in quality of life.

With the Underwater Transceiver-mini, Bao Sitong, Xiao Liyun, and Yan Fei have successfully revolutionized underwater communication for divers. This affordable and user-friendly device is set to enhance the diving experience and make underwater communication more accessible and enjoyable for all.
