Crowdfunding Campaign Launched For BW Space Underwater Drone

If you’re in the market for an underwater drone, the latest one to enter this crowded field is the BW Space.

Depth-rated to 100 meters/328 feet, the BW Space is the second-generation underwater drone from YouCan Robotics, following the BW1 which was released in 2017. The latest version brings the addition of smart tracking where users can lock in their target through the YouCan app (iOS & Android), making shooting images more precise. The BW Space also has an automatic light adjustment feature that intelligently adjusts the lighting according to underwater conditions. It is equipped with two 1380lm LED lights, while BW1 features 1200lm.

The remote control can live-stream footage directly to your cell phone or tablet for instant sharing.

On August 8th, YouCan Robotics launched a Kickstarter campaign for the BW Space.

Kickstarter pledge specials start at US$659/~567 Euros.

With a user-friendly remote controller, hand-held design, 4K Ultra-HD video capture, and 12MP camera, users can experience an underwater world in HD and capture vivid images. Battery life has been extended for up to 7 hours and holds 128GB of SD storage to house all you underwater adventures and memories. The BW Space camera films in 30FPS for smooth quality capture, and the camera can rotate +45° to see anything above or below.
