    $750! A Chinese farmer can do it for much less with scraps… And maybe it can even walk!

      Perhaps a ~$5,000 project that took two years to complete and, um, isn’t a ROV, might not be the best example. It’s a pretty cool mini-sub, though.

    It’s nice to see this is coming together. I’ve been building these things with my brother’s family, but we haven’t quite gotten the simplicity thing figured out yet.

    WOW! We worked on this at the International Space Apps Challenge! I wasn’t on the OpenROV team for the weekend, but I did hang out with them on Saturday evening for a while when my brain was fried on MathTrax hacking. The guys that were leading the OpenROV project at Space Apps in San Francisco were infectiously excited about what they were doing. I’m looking forward to seeing the results of their project in a year or so!
