New to OpenROV?
We're looking to bring on a Production Assistant here at the HQ in Berkeley. We're moving into a new space and production will be ramping up.
Please email your resume, portfolio or any additional material to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Production Assistant".

We've seen so many interesting add-ons and derivatives of OpenROV, I thought I'd make a list of some of them. If you've made your own OpenROV with major modifications, please post photos! Here's Part I of an ongoing series...

Here is a movie from winter diving in Sweden which I shot a few months ago. The water is around 0.5 degrees and about 3 meters deep. There is a lot of trash and bottles because it's in a river that runs through the city.

I have been busy this past winter upgrading my build to the new controller Board and BBB along with changing my motors to the same as those used in the Open ROV. Had some Thrusters 3D printed and switched my lights to smaller housings and added the Lasers, IMU and another light under the ROV. Now I am all ready for the testing to see how this puppy performs. With the smaller motors I should reduce the ESC over temp conditions I had with the bigger motors and hoping the new thrusters give me better performance. I also added a Poly cord to my tether for added security and recrecovery. My next effort will be to add a gripper arm but for now I just want some play time. Here is a picture of my updated older build using the BBW & Cape and the other with the 2.6 Controller Bd.
