The pitch: CCROV is the first underwater robot equipped with a 4K camera allowing live HD video transmission to tablets or smartphones via its dedicated app. Designed for both research and recreational use, the CCROV allows scuba divers to share their adventure with guests on board as well as professionally document their discoveries with the option to connect an FPV or VR headset to experience the footage in 3D.
Cost: Founded by Henry He, CCROV is seeking $20,000 through crowdfunding with investments starting at $5.
Return: As with all Indiegogo campaigns, the more you pledge the more your receive. While $5 will get you a thank you note, $1599 will get a CCROV robot at 41% off the retail price.
