More on the CRACUNS




Some people - including Tillerwoman - thought I was making up that story I posted yesterday about the drone that would work underwater and in the air.

Not at all. It's real.

The CRACUNS wakes!

The CRACUN post appeared on 2 April this side of the International Date Line, so I never doubted the Tillerman's veracity. Sanity is another matter.
I wonder how it would fly with a month's worth of seaweed growth.
I'd prefer to meet the CRACUN than the CAPTOR (mine).

Alas, Tillerman appears to have gone crackers over CRACUNS.

I suppose if children are call young-uns, the small slit in my hull may be a cracun.

Better a cracun than a Kim Jong Un.

…such a shame for me, I can't see the video, flash out of date, can the kraken see me scratching my head?

Tillerman said...

Alas, the CRACUNS isn't actually a commercial product but a proof-of-concept created by some clever engineers at a university, probably with military applications in mind. Still it would be really cool to own one.

Jay Eveleth said...

This one is not commercially available, but visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaRpTclSwX0 to see one that is. That site got over 2 million hits.

Tillerman said...

Thanks Jay. Commercially available waterproof floating drones do exist, so anyone who wants to photograph sailing should have no fear of such a drone landing in the water.

As US taxpayers, we probably already own one.

I wonder if we didn't also pay for the development costs.

And what interest could the Secretary of the Navy possibly have in a device that was obviously designed for the 'aerial mission' of photographing sailboat racing.
