TheBlu, Online Ocean on Your Mac, PC

TheBlu, Online Ocean on your Mac, PC.

TheBlu simulates a living, changing, real-time Internet ocean. Artists add species and objects to the ocean, which can then be experienced by everyone. An ocean-as-a-service.

TheBlu runs as a screensaver on Mac, PC’s and will be available on other devices.

An interesting concept! 

It will have a clear use in dentist’s offices – you can experience the ocean while waiting in the dentist’s chair.

What is missing from TheBlu?
  • an API for developers to add to the ocean and use the ocean within their apps
  • a geolocation feature which allows people to experience the ocean differently based on their location
