The Sibiu Nano is a remotely operable underwater drone, developed by Spain-based Nido Robotics, that offers the utility of the typical underwater drone in addition to the added enjoyment of optional self-assembly.

This underwater drone can certainly be purchased pre-assembled, but can also be procured in the form of a kit that allows consumers to put the drone together themselves. What's more, the drone is designed to easily accept accessories and upgrades, while the use of open-source software means that users with an eye for coding can program different uses for the drone.

Currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, the Sibiu Nano underwater drone is a fine example of open-source coding and DIY sensibilities infiltrating a new and exciting market space.
