Swedish company TTRobotix has introduced the TTR-SB Seawolf, a remote controlled submarine that includes a forward-facing mount for the GoPro HERO3 and HERO4 cameras. Seawolf allows video footage and still images to be captured underwater in depths up to 8m/26ft while an operator remotely controls the vessel; live streaming is also available. Offered in saltwater and freshwater versions, this is an update over the original Seawolf vessel, which does not have GoPro support.

Seawolf has a maximum speed of 3.3km/h (approximately 2MPH) delivered via a 5-blade brass propeller, and there are three fins for stabilization. The integrated 5,000mAh battery is able to power the submarine for approximately 50 minutes before needing to be recharged, and the method of control available depends on the Seawolf version:

  • Version 5222-F11 transmits a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi signal for control with a standard smartphone.
  • The 5222-F12 version transmits a 5.8GHz signal to an included Bascom D4 controller with an 8" LED-backlit display.
  • Version 5222-F13 uses a 30m cable and a tether wheel rather than wireless signals.

The TTR-SB Seawolf will launch this August for $999 USD.
