Control this underwater camcorder with your iPad (w/video)
(Nanowerk News)Want to study marine life up close, inspect a boat or anchor below the waterline, search for sunken pirate treasure, or just make fun underwater videos without needing to dive down deep into the water, then check out the cool new Aquabotix HydroView Sport. This remote-operated video camera/submarine sends and records live HD video to an iPad from 100' underwater.
HydroView is a remote operated underwater vehicle with a high definition video camera and LED lights that employs motion control technology. See the underwater world through live video, capture still shots, upload recorded images to social media sites, and navigate through the water using your iPad, iPhone, Android phone or laptop.
HydroView is a fun, safe way to view fish, scope out dive locations, look for underwater relics or find possessions that fell off a dock or a boat. The HydroView is also a must-have tool for boaters to inspect the bottom of the boat, check on anchor setting or mooring, and evaluate underwater environments that may damage your watercraft.
Simply drive the HydroView via motion-control on your iPad or the keyboard on your laptop and the vehicle will respond in the appropriate direction, translating your device movements into vehicle action. The HydroView even generates its own Wi-Fi, saving you the frustration of searching for a signal while on the water. The easy-to-use on screen display of the application makes its features very intuitive.
