One company developed affordable underwater drones that can access underwater visuals. Drones are conventionally expensive -- but with more cost-effective models, they are being used for more recreational use by student and hobbyists to professionals.

'OpenROV' developed an underwater drone that is affordable and accessible for a larger market without sacrificing quality and effectiveness. The 'Trident' is an economical alternative to expensive drones -- while still featuring capable navigation and video transmission. Users can navigate the drone to make video of hard-to-see areas and transmit them back for analysis.

These underwater drones come equipped with a 1080p camera and a sleek wedge body that is as practical as it is agile. The device is so small and portable that it can fit in a backpack.
