While still not as plentiful as their aerial cousins, there are now several underwater drones that are either in development or production. Essentially consumer versions of the Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) used by scientists and other professionals, they're camera-equipped unmanned mini-subs that let users see what's lurking beneath the surface of their local waterways. And while almost
