Certainly you've seen a photo of the Barreleye Fish pictured above. The translucent head always mesmerizes me. It's a perfect example of all the crazy and alien species that inhabit the ocean (and how little we know about them).
Yesterday, while we were testing a totally clear OpenROV that we built for demo purposes, Eric commented that watching the clear OpenROV was like looking at a Barreleye Fish. He was exactly right. There's something incredibly cool about watching the electronic parts and motors move through the water.
We're thinking about doing a limited run of special edition "Barreleye" OpenROVs--as kits and assembled versions. What do you think? Would you want one?
If so, drop your name here and we'll let you know when they're available.
