Fortunately, Asha de Vos' research is helping us understand how to help. She's crowdfunding support for her research. You can (and should) support her here:

When Bad Things Happen to Good Robots

This piece is the closest I've come to describing the future we sense is unfolding with OpenROV (and beyond). I tried my best, but still feel like I couldn't quite capture the thrill.
The submersible explorer I built is more than a machine to me
