The Navatics Mito is a remotely operated underwater vehicle that can shoot 12-megapixel still images and capture 4K video at 30 fps. Four thrusters allow it to maintain depth, heading and orientation at a speed of 3.8 knots, and it comes with two 1,000-lumen LED lights. It can run for four hours at 130 feet while tethered to a communication buoy, which can be operated by a smartphone from 1,640 feet away. At 14 by 12 by 5 inches and 7.6 pounds, the Mito can travel in a backpack.
