The iBubble is a spectacular underwater drone that is capable of autonomously following a scuba diver, tracking them and taking video and photo as they move around underwater.

While many aerial drones have a so-called 'Follow Me' mode that allows them to autonomously follow you and shoot video of you performing some outdoor activity, there are no underwater drones that are capable of doing this -- until now. The iBubble is equipped with sonar-based obstacle avoidance technologies that prevent it from running into underwater formations as well as marine life. It is also equipped with an object recognition system that makes it possible to visually identify and lock on to a target before following it.

Ultimately, the iBubble underwater drone will enable divers and underwater exploration enthusiasts to take truly heart-stopping photos and video without losing their focus underwater.
