A new water exploration drone has been created in the form of the Picam360 SurfaceWalker, which is this week launched via Kickstarter with the aim of raising its required £6,700 to make the jump into production. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the unique drone which provides a “remote snorkelling” experience thanks to its wireless 3G connectivity.
The Picam360 SurfaceWalker is available to back with early bird pledges available from roughly $265 or £200, with worldwide delivery expected to take place during January 2019
“The Picam360 SurfaceWalker is an unmanned surface vessel (also known as an aquatic drone) that can be operated over extremely long distances, allowing you to visit far-off places, even from the comfort of your own home. A panoramic camera is mounted on the bottom of the drone. You can watch the video being streamed from this camera in real-time on the screen of your smartphone, and freely change the viewing angle, all while operating the easy-to-use drone. This means that you can experience the fun of what we call remote snorkeling at your convenience, even in places that are difficult to access, and even if you’re not a strong swimmer. “
