MAKE Flickr photo pool member Csc934 writes – “For this project, we are using the text Build Your Own Underwater Robot. The clicker idea is pretty solid, and the pvc is easy to work with. The pvc seemed like enough when I got it, but it went incredibly fast. In less than a week, most of it was gone. We have a janitor’s tub in the room that will be filled with water for testing. Storing dry ROV’s is one thing, but when they are all wet, it will be much more difficult.” – Link.

Check out this 1 minute video with Greenpeace’s underwater photo/videographer and deep sea toy specialist, Gavin Newman, aboard the Esperanza.
After months of confronting whalers and pirates, some might envy the crew aboard the next leg of Defending Our Oceans who are heading to the beautiful Azores in the mid-Atlantic. For this leg of the expedition, the Esperanza has been equipped with state of the art monitoring equipment, including a remote operating vehicle (ROV) which can shoot video down to a depth of 300m, and a drop camera capable of reaching depths of 1,000 metres – giant squid territory! The ship will become part of the ongoing University of the Azores research program intended to establish greater scientific knowledge of the importance of deep-sea habitats and marine life.
