Have a look to HydroView


#1

Hey,

Did you see that?

I find the iOS app interesting.

Also interesting to see how the propelers are located...

Not interesting is its $5,875.00 price tag. It's definitely cool, but this is what I love about the OpenROV project, bring that cost DOWN!

Indeed!

Nevertheless, it's good to take good ideas everywhere.

I am surprised the max depth is 150ft. The product looks robust... So I am wondering: is it crazy to try going deeper?

Interesting to see that they can handle 500ft cable and they are able to reload the batterie while diving...

Trickle charging the batteries is something that's well within the possibility for OpenROV - there were a few people who were working on that. We've just stayed away from that for safety reasons.
