The iBubble – the first autonomous underwater camera drone – is going to be launching on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform on April 19th.  Named “one of the top 5 tech gadgets” at the International Boot Show in Düsseldorf, iBubble intends to raise $75 000 on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to accelerate its production.

The device is in it’s 2nd working prototype – dubbed the “pipelette” – and is being extensively tested along with Freediver Guillaume Néry.
