GADGETS unveils a newly made underwater selfie-taking robotic drone

Nothing could give more fun and video coverage details beneath the surface the water than the newly-made iBubble. An underwater drone equipped with artificial intelligence for the sole purpose of covering video and instant pictures under the water. The details were revealed by Gadgets in their social media pages. Based on that, ibubble, as it is known, has become one of the newly made robot drones expected to greet the popular markets of drones anytime soon.

With its triangular designed shape, ibubble is equipped with a special image capturing and video cameras capable of taking clear and visible images even in water with less visibility. Though not shown, it is believed that LED lights may be attached to the drone to support in water with low visibility. Nevertheless, the cameras' pixel is good enough to make a good video even at a distance in the water.

Unlike other existing drones or robots with similar functionalities, iBubble is quite different because of its ability to complete work with artificial intelligence without any remote control or external interference. It can swim alongside the user using sensors as detectors, in that case, it follows the user as both swims under the water.

While moving under the water iBubble maintains a stable position like drones would do while flying in the air. The streamline triangle design makes it possible to easily suspend on the water for a long time if the need be. It can stand-still once it senses its user is standing-still while its video coverage runs on non-stop bases. It also has the potential to make an elevation as can be seen in the image above this paragraph. The angle of elevation makes it possible to take pictures in styles while in water. Besides, iBubble can be programmed to take pictures periodically while under the water.

Based on design, the water drone has three sets of electric motors-powered rotors, one stationed at the front alliance with the triangle shape, while the other two are stationed at the same position along the end part of the drone having uniformly spaced arrangement as seen from the image above. These rotors control the swimming operations of the drone in terms of the lifting and elevation movements according to the sensors activations. IBubble can easily be held with one hand just like quadcopter drones. It has one of the simplest design that can be found in water drones or robots.

iBubble breaks the record of being the first world autonomous drone operating without a remote rather it takes its actions based on programming making use of sensors for signals.

The water drone operates with a rechargeable battery which can power it up to one-hour working interval per charging with the potential of reaching the maximum depth of 60m.

The sensing design makes it possible for iBubble to locate the target precisely even in the presence of water waves and other common distractions. and shoot stable footage underwater. Just as iron follows magnets, that could be how iBubble follows its target.

For tourists seeking for fun in the swimming pool, we guess iBubble could do that for you.  You may be having the feeling of being with a companion as it lets you spend more time exploring the good pleasure the water has to offer.
