A team of developers from Singapore aptly known as The Team has created a wireless palm sized underwater drone which connects directly to a smartphone companion application and is equipped with a wide-angle lens allowing you to capture the action under the waves.
Watch the video below to learn more about the Druiser which is taken to Kickstarter this week and will start shipping during November 2017 if the campaign is successful. Druiser is the world’s smallest remote operated wireless underwater drone designed for consumer recreational use.
The development team behind Druiser explain more about its inspiration and design:
Druiser creates a thrilling and seamless experience for enthusiasts and hobbyists alike, providing an immersive first person view experience through its integrated wireless HD camera module. Druiser’s hull will be constructed out of optical grade polycarbonate to allow for high visual clarity for the HD camera embedded within the hull body, while ensuring extremely high levels of strength and durability to the hull structure. (NOTE: The current image is a prototype made from 3D printed materials for testing and evaluation of technical specifications.)
The lightweight polycarbonate construction also ensures that Drusier maintains a very high power to weight ratio to glide through and under the water surface with ease. The underwater hull geometry has also been engineered to exacting precision ensuring directional stability while maintaining high levels of manoeuvrability.
With Druiser, we’re designing a user-friendly underwater drone that gives users’ unprecedented capabilities that were previously only possible with commercial AUVs (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles). We have taken the same technology and “miniaturised” it into Druiser to allow for recreational use.
