Flying is for suckers! These new mini-submarine drones take a GoPro underwater

While shooting without someone behind the camera is normally a job for the drones (or robots), Seawolf takes that concept underwater with mini-submarines. Now, the latest addition to the Seawolf line takes the 360 experience underwater.

The submersible take on drone photography isn’t new, but the Seawolf line tends to make the idea a bit more affordable with systems that use a mount for a popular camera like a GoPro instead of a built-in rig. The company, TTRobotics, introduced its GoPro subs last year with two versions, one for sea and one for fresh water.

The Seawolf VR360, still in development, incorporates the Luna, a 360-degree camera popular because of its small size; and uses a GoPro and goggles to navigate. While the sub can’t dive quite as deep as the other options, it’s still capable of heading down about 80 feet.
