Ziphius: The (Friendly) Aquatic Drone

The word ‘drone’ has taken on pretty some serious overtones in recent years, but Ziphius ($195+) is here to lighten the mood a bit—without resorting to the fake mustache and glasses bit. This is an aquatic drone that lets you see what lurks beneath the water’s surface, as well as play games and bring you a cold one in the pool. Control Ziphius via your smartphone or tablet (Wi-Fi range goes to 300 ft) and get it going up to 6 mph as you use the 160º tilting angle HD camera to snap pictures and record video. Nice droney, nice.
