Imagine if you were able to explore coral reefs of the world, swim the depths of the ocean, and dive with marine animals - all without having to leave a classroom or even get wet?
Never before has underwater virtual reality (VR) videography been collected in the Maldives - until our recent expedition. We are creating three educational products in 2017 that will engage audiences in a new frontier to discover their world and feel connected with oceans and communities.
Parterning with Hiverlab, Hydrous delivers immersive storytelling supplemented with science curriculum to individuals, schools and educators.
