First Internet-enabled ROV

Last updated: September 15, 2017 at 0:25 am

In 2008, Foster’s Brewery (Australia) created Ride the Scuba, the world’s first internet controlled “scuba” device, at the National Marine Aquarium, in Plymouth (UK). Users could pilot a little sub through a tank at the aquarium to destroy big bubbles in real time from their PC. The campaign was to promote the introduction of the in-can Scuba, a revolutionary lager widget, to Foster’s cans. The Scuba destroys big bubbles in the can, to create a lager that ‘slips down like a dream’.


EDITOR’S NOTE
Although it was called the Scuba, the device was in fact a VideoRay ROV.
