The idea for the product came about in 2008 while diving in Australia with co-founder Eduard Sabelfeld when they lost sight of each other under the water. “The feeling of suddenly being alone in the water led us to the idea of finding a technical solution,” says Feicht. From this idea, they created a wearable that is worn like a wristwatch and facilitates communication through ultrasonic vibrations.
