Let Your Fish Roam Free

use thisThe ‘Abovemarine’ is a vehicle that allows your fish to roam free. Developed by South African Adam Ben-Dror, it is powered by ‘Omniwheels’ and uses camera technology, which allows the fish freedom to be able to navigate surroundings outside his or her fish tank. Once the fish is inside the device, the vehicle moves with the fish.

If it appears your beloved beta fish is going to collide, say for example with your rumba, all that your fish needs to do is to swim backwards, and the vehicle will stop. The Abovemarine is not intended to be a home for the fish, but rather an opportunity to allow your fish to ‘get out’ and explore for a period of time. Who says fish don’t need to get out too?
