Build Your Own Underwater Robot

ROV Kit

Thanks to a group of smart, entrepreneurial minded kids from Carl Hayden High School in Phoenix and their work for the National Underwater Robotics Challenge, you can now build your own underwater robot for $250. The ROV-in-a-Box Project Kit features just about everything you need to put together your own working robot: frame, motors, underwater light, camera, 50-foot tether, operator control box, and dry-cell battery. However, you will still need to supply your own PVC cement, soldering iron, wrenches, drill, scissors, battery charger, and TV monitor.

It will take a little time, money, and effort but isn’t exploring the depths of your neighborhood swimming pool worth it? The kit is available in the link below, but you can check out the final product in action here. Sean Fallon
