This is the remote operated submarine that sends live video to an iPad from 100′ underwater. Ideal for viewing marine life or inspecting a boat below the waterline, the sub is tethered to its receiver on deck with a 100′ video cable. Communicating with the receiver using Wi-Fi, an app installed onto an iPad or laptop remotely controls the sub’s electric thrust and lift propellers for forward/backward (5 kts forward; 1 kt reverse), left/right, and up/down movement.
A virtual dashboard (an iPad’s motion sensors can also steer the sub) includes a joystick, camera controls, and displays depth, heading, battery level, and temperature data received from the sub’s built-in sensors. Its marine-grade, hydrodynamic ABS housing provides a watertight seal to protect the included HD video camera, which captures 1280 x 720 resolution footage (1280 x 800 for still images). Auto and manual focus control combined with the camera’s built-in timer allows you to take pictures at intervals while you steer the sub into optimal position. An array of eight adjustable-intensity LEDs illuminate underwater features.
