    I'm really only putting this here to remind me I want an OpenROV Trident underwater drone when it eventually comes out. I've been waiting nearly a year, and it gets pushed back a lot so I thought I would post this so I don't forget about it:

    However, I also discovered this one today which looks interesting - though this is only touted as a 'fishing drone' I quite like the design.

    Oh yeah, totally forgot about ccrov. I don't think U-Boot or Submarine is a good description, it is not a submarine. Most people in the business called them ROVs or UROV etc, remotely operated vehicle. However, if it has any kind of autonomy Drone is a good name. Underwater Drone just helps describe its environment.
    Anyway, CCROV looks good. Hope it gets released as promised next month! The writing in the above article is terrible, so here is the original info:

    Dear TechPeople and Gadget-Lovers, listen up.

    We need your feedback and support for our upcoming Kickstarter campaign, launching our one-of-a-kind submarine robot. We developed it for spicing up a day at the beach, exploring or examining caves and grottos around you, or whatever makes you day a little more exiting ā€“ We provide it.

    We now give a handful of people the chance, to get a glimpse of the future of personal robotics, and be part of it.

    So, what do you think? Do you like it? Can you benefit from it? Is it something worth your time?

    Please do tell us.

    As you might have seen in the short video, Allec will feature both drone and robotic functionality, a camera, and a control unit - you and your other gadgets ;-).


    Please write any questions or comments at our Facebook chat or wall: https://www.facebook.com/SupportiveRobotics/



    Thank you and enjoy J

    It looks all right, but what makes this underwater drone "one-of-a-kind", apart from how it looks?

    hi Jonathan,
    Thank you for your interest.
    It is not only a drone, but also a robot.
    Which means i can can be programmed to do tasks by itself, wire free. It also recognizes objects on its way and a lot more. We will announce full specs and features later this month.
    Feel free to subscribe to our Facebook for updates or questions :) best regard.

    Does it have arms to pick things up?

    I have a look on the facebook page, there is not a lot of information there but I think it will not pick objects up? I think it will not have arms and gripper? It seem like a small size project.

    That looks pretty awesome. Be great to check out Lake Mead with it.

    It looks ok, but I think people would want to see more video taken by Allec, rather than video of Allec moving around?

    Thank you for your reply!
    Just check out the kickstarter page, and there are plenty of videos shot by Allec ;-)

    Iā€™m saying you main sales pitch, the first video you see, should be like 60 or 70% footage and images captured by the drone.
