Hi my name is Martin and this site is about the world of underwater ROV’s (Remote operated vehicles)
I’ve been working on mine for some time now but have been dreaming about building one for years.
I debuted the first version at the Newcastle Maker Faire in March 2011 and shortly after presented it at the Scottish Ruby conference in Edinburgh
I’m next off to the Brighton Mini Maker Fair taking place on Saturday 3rd September 2011.
Boddam Harbour video record test
Test the new Nunchuck controller
Testing in North Berwick harbour, Lothian. Successful test although no decent video was obtained. Quick test only as I was in the way of some commercial boats that wanted to land.
Dunk test Boddam harbour, Aberdeenshire. Epic fail full of water needed to redo the entry points for the cables. Filled them with fibreglass resin.
Photos from Newcastle Maker Faire March 2011, fantastic two days.
Micro ROV’s purchased as a kit from MadLab, Designed by Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen
These are all photos that were taken during the build of my ROV
