That weekend we worked with our first OpenROV. Difficulties arose left and right, unlike everyone else coding away we had to work with a drone that as it turned out had a defunct camera system. We didn’t win anything at that hackathon but I was more encouraged than discouraged. There was something exciting here we were going to explore.
It all started at the Gray Area Art + Tech Theatre where the VR Hackathon was held on October 17th. Actually it started long before then when I was talking with Eric after MakerCon. Back then the idea was hatched that it would be amazing to use an OpenROV to collect environmental data while virtual divers explored coral reefs. All in the name of conservation, education mixed in with a bit of unreal technology. I knew almost nothing about VR.
