Love ItLove It

no new posts approved :-( and some upcoming cool tech reviews!

As I was afraid, the admins approved posts for one day and then went back to whatever project is consuming their time, so please send messages to them reminding or asking to have authors’ posts approved!

One of the things that I was looking forward to was testing a couple of devices in our neighborhood pool before heading out into the wild with them. There is a personal propulsion system called SubBlue. What this does is allows you to operate the water jets to propel yourself through the water at around 2 miles per hour for a half hour. Most people will tell you that swimming a mile in around an hour is physically hard, so 2 miles per hour is a good speed underwater. The cool thing about Subblue is that it also has a holder for your cell phone. It will protect your cell phone underwater but allow you to take videos and pictures while you are “underwater.”

But they closed our pool for the year due to that pesky thing I will not mention. The other thing I wanted to be able to test in pool water was the new Finding Dory device. No, it is not a clownfish seeking missile or a system to catch clownfish. Finding Dory is an underwater ROV. The advantage of testing marine gear in a pool is if you make a dumb mistake, it is easy to jump and grab the device. In a lake or pond, it isn’t as easy. We will have to buy a license for one of the Canoes and head over to Boyd’s like to try out Dory. I won’t use the SubBlue in a lake first, so I will have to wait until this fall when the indoor pool near us will be opened (limited access, but that is better for what I want to do anyway!

I love being in the water, so it is hard not to be able to test these things. But we have to change due to the virus.  I will do reviews for both of these and a few other technologies once I get a chance to get out and wander around a lake worth exploring underwater. It would help if you had a little bit of depth in the water for the exploration to be fun. If the lake doesn’t get deeper than 2 to 3 feet, it isn’t unusual. It is enjoyable to go looking for old lunkers underwater (a lunker is an old bass). Its fun to look at them in their native world. Anyway, always fun to share current new technologies. The world of underwater and aerial ROV’s has continued to improve. There are many interesting devices out there, and many more are coming!
