本研究は、ダイビング中の記録体験を拡張するシステムである。水中用カメラに浮力を装着して、ダイバーと紐で固定することで、ダイバーを三人称視点で記録し続けるシステムができた。実際にダイビング中に利用して、映像を見ながら体験を振り返っているときの観察を実施した。

We propose "PukuPuCam" system, an apparatus to record one's diving experience from a third-person view, allowing the user to recall the experience at a later time. "PukuPuCam" continuously captures the center of the user's view point, by attaching a floating camera to the user's body using a string. With this simple technique, it is possible to maintain the same viewpoint regardless of the diving speed or the underwater waves. Therefore, user can dive naturally without being conscious about the camera. The main aim of this system is to enhance the diving experiences by recording user's unconscious behaviour and interactions with the surrounding environment.
