The new v2.5 OpenROV.

As a few of you know, we recently raised a seed round of funding from True Ventures. Liz Gannes covered it today in AllThingsD.

This project and community has grown into something we’re extremely proud to be part of. When we started, Eric and I talked a lot about trying to maximize  “Return on Adventure”. That’s still the goal. And it’s the entire community that makes it possible. Colin’s trip to Tulum is a perfect example. We want to make sure that being part of this community translates into more excitement and adventure.

True is a great partner. Jon Callaghan and the team understand the new hardware landscape, and understand the value of a strong open-source community. Raising money means we’re going to be able to invest more in the technology as well as the community. For instance, we’re building a new platform – Open Explorer – to make it easier to share your expeditions in real and near-real time. More tools to empower all of us to go further.

We’ll have a lot more to share in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, check out the new v2.5 OpenROV and, as always, send us an email with any questions.
