RNLI debuts Google cardboard project
When the emergency pager sounds, lifeboat crews around the UK and Ireland will now save lives at sea without so much as leaving the comfort of their beds.
Our friends at the RNLI have always been at the forefront of cutting-edge innovation and now the Navigator’s Intrinsic Technology Wave Interface Terminal, a virtual reality app based on Google Cardboard, will mean volunteers can steer the lifeboat without so much as stepping aboard – no hands or previous lifeboating experience required.
The Lough Swilly RNLI crew are shown here testing the system aboard their new Shannon class lifeboat Derek Bullivant.
