Underwater Drone: Seadragon XLR

The Seadragon is a battery-powered unmanned submarine operated with a joystick, tablet or even Xbox controller. It wouldn’t look out of place as a gadget in a James Bond movie, with its eight highly manoeuvrable thrusters and optional robotic arm for grabbing objects. The camera is ultra-low latency, and 1080p HD video, so the images are crisp and clean.

The remotely operated vehicle (ROV) from Thunder Tiger Corp can dive to depths of 300m and stay submerged for hours, making it ideal for marine research, underwater rescue or surveillance. It also has an interchangeable module design, so it can be customised according to the mission.
