    Comms device aquaSketch Minno Scrolling Slate

    Appeared in DIVER May 2016
    COMMUNICATION UNDER WATER can be limited, to say the least. To get their messages across to each other, some divers deviate from the limited array of standard signals and end up gesticulating wildly, using signs that probably translate into some extraterrestrial language.
    Misunderstandings are inevitable, and in some extreme cases could compromise safety.
    What's needed is a foolproof method of communication, one that leaves the recipient in no doubt about the intended meaning.
    Most divers understand the written word (assuming that they speak the same language), and words can be applied to lo-tec plastic slates with a standard pencil.
    This works OK, but slates offer limited space, so for someone like me with a lot to say, it's the equivalent of a gag.
    My regular buddies are likely to be holding their heads in their hands right now, because I've been sent a scrolling slate with 5ft of waterproof media on which to write – plus a pencil. It's the aquaSketch Minno, and I’ve been scribbling away to my heart's content.
