Robertson goes hi-tech to find his lost camera on seabed
He is perhaps best known for being creative with well-known works by famous singer-songwriters, but now Steven Robertson has shown his inventive side extends to machines as well.
Mr Robertson lost his high definition Go-Pro video camera while recently out windsurfing in the Catfirth voe. But, not to be out-done, he turned his hand to creating a remotely-operated, underwater search vehicle – using plumbing pipe, a skip DVD player, a fishbox, an Amiga joystick and other random items apparently found on ebay.And perseverance has certainly paid off for the inventive entertainer.
The device, christened “Sea Rover”, actually helped Mr Robertson find – and more crucially, retrieve – the lost camera.
Could a patent be pending for Mr Robertson’s new device? Or, at the very least, a high-pressure appearance before the panel of Dragons’ Den? If nothing else, it could make for good material for his next song.
