Supportive Robotics based in Denmark has created a new submersible drone equipped with an underwater camera that allows you to explore almost any type of water whether it be sea, lake or pond. The underwater robot called Allec has been designed to be wirelessly controlled allowing you complete freedom while under the waves. Allec can be controlled by either a PC All the companion iOS and Android application. To raise funds to take the submersible droning to manufacture its creators this week launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the £88,000 required. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about Allec.
If you are like us, you simply can’t help looking at every pool of water you pass by, wondering what’s below. Allec is all about allowing you to explore lakes, ponds, the sea, water tanks, your aquarium… Allec does it all. What makes Allec special is that he is a real robot, allowing him to do various missions on his own. You just need to tell him what to do and then sent him on the job. Need to check an lake before swimming or fishing? Just want to see the sights below? Allec is the partner to bring along. And no worries, you can control him directly through a wire and wireless too.
A real robot can of course be programmed. For those who just want to start exploring, not caring about how to program, a number of predefined missions are available. A mission is an overall task you can assign Allec, like scounting an area, leading you to the coordinates of a shipwreck, looking for the nearest fish. A mission can be started directly by pressing Allec’s mission selector eye, but you of course can also start him through the app or pc user interface.
