AI=Air Integrated.

UNLESS your name is Dave, and you're on board the Discovery en route to Jupiter.

Then your AI is named HAL..and it sings Daisy to you.

THANKSNever a stupid question around here ... sometimes I think they need to have a section on just explaining some of the dive lingo (it's almost as bad as bank lingo! :smiley2:)

Since OP's question was answered... anyone know how they came up with the name HAL? :smilie40:

Air-Integrated

It constantly monitors your cylinder pressure and comparing it with YOUR air consumption rate and decompression status. This will show YOUR dive time remaining based on the most limiting factor.

AI computers can also be wireless. Wrist mount computers with transmitters, which give the same calculations, but without hose.

"I'm sorry Dave, Im afraid I can't do that" "You seem upset why don't you take a stress pill..."

HAL=Heuristically-programmed Algorithmic Computer H.A.L. Labratories Urbana, Illinois. :smilie40:

Well, occasionally there are stupid questions but this isn't one of them.

I agree that we should have a dictionary somewhere.. I just got a new car and I've been browsing the forums on it and it's full of acronyms I don't understand...

How much does an wireless air integrated computer cost? Base price*

Just from browsing ST, it seems that the base runs right around 800 and up. Check this used Oceanic VT3 (http://www.scubatoys.com/store/detail.asp?product_id=OceanicVT3HoselessNitroxComp uter) for under 600. (used 1 time) Hardly even qualifies as used.

Don't forget your 10% discount with ScubaToys. Puts the VT3 at about $719

You can find IA computers that are not wireless for less than that. The transmitter adds up between ($150 to $200) to the cost of the computer.
