Modular Ocean Exploration Toolkit
After coming back from the Galapagos, I wanted to bring back the freedom to explore and investigate the unexplored layers of the ocean with a modular, robust, easily assembled and deployable electronics kit.
I looked around and only found a few (expensive! - $15,000 or more) untethered drop cams and nothing that could be self-assembled. Turns out that modular underwater electronic design is difficult - and sounds like an excellent Ph.D. project.
Here are a few hardware projects have inspired me thus far…
And a couple more underwater ones…
