Look, Another Underwater Drone, But This One Is The First To Record In 4K

Claiming itself as a professional-grade Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), CCROV is indeed the first of its kind to offer 4K videoing capability. Unlike iBubble we saw earlier, this thing appears to be ready to get into the ocean and also, offered a much deeper depth of dive, going as deep down as 100 meters (328 […]

This Is iBubble, The Underwater Equivalent Of An Aerial Imaging Drone

Sporting action footages on land and on the surface of a waterbody are covered by imaging drones, but what about underwater? Well, it is covered too, by this little guy called iBubble Autonomous Underwater Camera – the underwater equivalent of a personal aerial imaging drone. iBubble is propelled by no less than eight brushless motors, […]

Netherlands’ Has Waste Sharks That Chomp Down Garbage On The Sea

Pixar’s Wall-E painted a grim picture of the future. In the animated flick, the protagonist, Wall-E, is a lone garbage collecting robot that deals with the waste left behind by a post-apocalypse Earth. This seaborne drone you see here, dubbed Waste Shark, is much like Wall-E, except that (and thankfully) that it is not here […]

Seawolf VR360 Lets You Capture Underwater Scenery In 360-Degree

Too afraid of the deep blue to explore them? Lucky for those who have a love and hate relationship with the majestic ocean, there’s Google to satisfy your curiosity of what lies beneath the beautiful, blue surface. But that’s not the only way; you can choose to acquire a personal sub to do that if […]

This UAV Lurks Beneath The Water, Only Emerging For Aerial Missions

Rutgers University is certainly not the only institution exploring the possibility of UAV/Unmanned Sea Vehicle hybrid. Last week, John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory also announced its own iteration, which the institution calls Corrosion Resistant Aerial Covert Unmanned Nautical System, or CRACUNS (pronounced as ‘Krakens’). The abbreviation ‘CRACUNS’ may sounds like the mythical sea monster of […]

Boeing New Autonomous Submarine Can Stay Submerged For Months

Boeing is most notable for commercial and military aircraft, but unbeknownst to some, it also dabbles in watercraft, specifically underwater systems, for over 50 years now. The company’s latest development is a 51-foot Echo Voyager, an unmanned undersea vehicle, that’s design to operate autonomously for months on end. Prior to Echo Voyager, Boeing has two […]

Rutgers University’s Drone Can Fly In The Air And Dive Underwater

Drone and water don’t mix, but at Rutgers University, the researchers beg to differ. Unlike regular multicopters, Rutgers’ SubUAS “Naviator” Drone has no qualm about taking a dive into the water and that’s in addition to its ability fly like any regular multi-rotor drone. More importantly, it needs no transformation as it goes from air […]

OpenROV’s Trident is an ROV That Lets You ‘Fly’ Underwater at 3.9 Knots

Imaging drones, like those from DJI, revolutionized how drones are used and at the same time, created a whole new category of hobby. OpenROV is doing the same too, but instead of taking to the sky, it beckons open water lovers to explore the wonder of the underwater world at the comfort and safety of […]

Seawolf Will Take Your GoPro 10m Deep into the Ocean to Capture Underwater Footages

GoPro has seen wide applications, but one place it hasn’t quite been to is the deep blue sea. Not surprisingly cos’ not everyone is keen in taking the dive to capture some awesome underwater footages. However, with the TTRobotix TTR-SB Seawolf Submarine for GoPro, the world’s most used action camera can finally reach deep into […]

U.S. Navy’s New Underwater Robot Takes On The Likeness of a Shark and Behaves Like One Too

When you are spying on someone (not that you should, really), the last thing you want is to spook your subject with the obvious. That said, we can see why some military is so keen in developing intelligence-gathering unmanned vehicle in the likeness animals. Ok, may be such biomimicry is not solely for deception; it […]
