Controlling an OpenROV via a Pebble Watch!


Here Brian gives a quick demo of an OpenROV being controlled by a Pebble smart watch. Very cool! And even cooler to imagine the iterations of this hack - sending AUVs off the dock and controlling it by your watch, etc.

Is it difficult to control OpenROV with a watch?


Well, it's not controlling the whole ROV - just aspects. The point is to show more how some of these other tools can be modded to work with OpenROV. Imagine Google Glass viewing. And certainly more with Oculus Rift


That would be awesome!
