Notilo Plus, a company developing intelligent, autonomous underwater systems, announces the global commercial launch of iBubble, the world’s first fully wireless, autonomous and intelligent underwater drone. iBubble can accompany divers for up to an hour and up to 60 metres depth, acting as their personal cameraman, enabling superior underwater imaging.
This novel remotely operated vehicle (ROV) was designed using Notilo Plus’ patented underwater localization technology, enabling subaquatic adventures with no tethers. It comes with an advanced AI system, offering total autonomy and self-learning capabilities.
iBubble is equipped with a state-of-the-art obstacle avoidance system, which allows it to smoothly follow a diver, while obtaining unparalleled images for personal or commercial use. It features real-time image recognition, a unique stabilization system as well as direct surface control, bringing outstanding performance to underwater imaging.
The iBubble ROV is an environmentally-conscious device. It does not disturb the fragile marine ecosystem thanks to its minimal noise emission levels and its special obstacle avoidance capability. iBubble can be used for sports and entertainment filming, diving instruction, wildlife protection, search and rescue operations, naval or underwater infrastructure maintenance and subsea patrolling.
“We are excited to introduce to the world the first fully wireless, autonomous underwater drone,” says Nicolas Gambini, CEO of Notilo Plus. “With the countless cutting edge capabilities brought by the iBubble, coupled with its ability to bring exceptional pictures and video footage, this is a remarkable and versatile device for any diving activity.”
The device is now available for order globally.

Northern Diver announce new SV Dive Hoods
Manufactured from supple, 5mm superstretch neoprene, and complete with a plush internal lining, this hood fits like a comfortable second skin. This is further enhanced by the Black Skin neoprene face seals on the inside and outside of the hood, designed to effectively hug the contours of the face, providing exceptional sealing properties.
Performance, fit and comfort are also improved thanks to the one-way Supervent valve, located at the top of the hood. This innovative vent removes trapped air from within the hood, increasing comfort and ensuring a perfect fit throughout the dive.
The effective fit and construction of the hood ensures exceptional thermal protection, however, this is further improved by a unique Ti-Ax® coating applied to the hood for superior heat retention. Likewise, it also features an external MA heavy duty coating, for increased durability and longevity.
- Improved design
- 5mm superstretch neoprene
- Skin neoprene outer face seal
- Skin neoprene inner face seal

- Supervent at top of hood
- Unique Ti-Ax® Coating
