OpenROV to Perform Preliminary Dives

As you may already know, David Lang, our Zero to Maker columnist, is involved in the OpenROV project, an open source camera-equipped R/C submersible, designed to look for water-buried treasure. They're taking the ROV prototypes up to Hall City Cave in Northern, CA tomorrow for some preliminary dives. How exciting!

Eric and I and a few others are up near the Trinity Alps, planning to go to the Hall City Cave tomorrow with a couple OpenROV prototypes. As you can see from the photo, we've hacked a GoPro 3D camera onto the OpenROV.

Biggest challenge now is the weather.

More to come soon!
