A Virtual Drowning Experience

Sortie en Mer virtual drowning

Drowning is a scary way to go, and now you can experience it through your computer screen.  Creepy, right?  French marine clothing manufacturer Guy Cotten created a virtual drowning program called Sortie en Mer, which translated means "A Trip Out to Sea".

After getting knocked from the boat, users have to scroll quickly and continuously to keep the sailor afloat.  While it's definitely not the same feeling as struggling to keep your head afloat, you'll be surprised at how quickly your hand starts to ache.

The program is meant to stress the importance of wearing a life jacket when out in the open ocean to avoid similar drowning incidents.  The simulation shows that it doesn't take long for someone to tire while waiting for help.  Try it out and see how long you can last!
