Reality Check

  • Claim:

    The world's smallest remote operated wireless underwater drone

  • Reality:

    There are many complications in allowing this claim to be a reality

  • Claim:

    With Druiser, we’re designing a user-friendly underwater drone that gives users' unprecedented capabilities that were previously only possible with commercial AUVs (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles). We have taken the same technology and "miniaturised" it into Druiser to allow for recreational use.

  • Reality:

    The reality is, this is not true. Underwater control, wireless, is something that is yet to be made readily available to any consumer, let alone something as small as the Druiser.

  • Claim:

    Not only can it stay submerged for up to 30 minutes, the HD camera also allows users to live stream their dive in real-time.

  • Reality:

    Again, the ability to control a drone wirelessly underwater, is not something that technology has caught up with. Additionally, when you add the claim of streaming HD video to a phone, the overall claim becomes even more impossible.

Bottom Line

The Druiser is an idea, that sounds too good to be true, and quite possibly it is. Technology does not currently allow for the controlling of devices, wirelessly, underwater. Live streaming HD video from a remote drone underwater is something else that does not exist. If the Druiser claimed to just be an above water drone, then the possibility is completely changed. Videos and photos also do not show the potential backer the total working package, and for this reason major caution is advised.
