Drones these days are not only meant to be used in the sky. Underwater drones have become increasingly popular for those who like to go on underwater explorations.

One of the underwater drones that’s been put on the spotlight is Titan, a device that is expected to beat its rivals when it comes to the capability of going deep underwater. Most underwater drones can only be taken as deep as 50 to 100 meters. But Titan promised to go much further than that.

Titan is going to be the deepest underwater drone.

It can travel 150 m (490 feet) deep into the sea.

That way, anyone can have fun just exploring the ocean from the ground.

As stated on itsKickstarter, Titan will be “the most affordable” drone for underwater explorations. Its features include a 4k 30fps camera and “streamline, game-like control system.” The camera has a 160° ultra-wide angle lens to give you breathtaking images of marine life.

You can also capture spectacular 4K videos and 8MP vibrant images.

Titan is also built with impressive maneuverability and it comes with LED spotlight to help you see where you’re headed.

With Titan, one can capture crisp and clear photo and videos of the underwater world.

Titan also comes with a durable rolling case to easily transport the device. Whenever and wherever you go, Titan will tag along with you on your adventures.

It also includes a remote controller to connect with your smartphone or tablet for viewing. It works with its own GenoRev app so you can enjoy your sea exploration from your smartphone.

The device is also perfect for marine biologists, educators, as well as underwater photographers.

Alan Wang, chief technical officer for Geneinno, which is Titan’s manufacturer, explains to Digital Trends what makes Titan stand out from other brands of underwater drones. He said:

“Titan [is] more stable than other underwater drones, because we know that stability means everything. No matter how good your camera is, without stability, there is no way you can get good pictures, especially underwater.”

Nature can truly be amazing. A prehistoric praying mantis was trapped in amber around 30 million years ago. However, the ancient predator looks like it could have been catching flies just yesterday.

The praying mantis, which may have been an ancestor of the Mantidae family, is frozen in Dominican amber. The little insect was sold by Heritage Auctions for $6,000 in 2016. Luckily, we can still see the stunning image of the ancient critter that once preyed on other insects during the time of the dinosaurs.

Here's a glimpse of what a modern-day praying mantis looks like.

Eldest Children Are Not The Best Drivers, Says Research

Eldest children are not always the best at everything, are they?

Eldest children, also commonly tagged as the firstborns, are typically the most everything in the family. They are usually the favorite of either one or both of the parents, or some other members of the family. Though other children may disagree, the firstborn is always either the most beautiful, most successful, and as one study had said, the cleverest. Not in this case, though!

"First-born children are typically associated with strong personalities," psychologist Dr. Seda Gragossian. As it turns out, researchers at the Southern California Child Study Center find bossiness to be more prevalent in firstborns. It seems the eldest children do not only dominate their youngest sibling, but are also more likely to do so on the road. As such, they are not exactly the safest drivers.

Eldest children who drive tend to show dominance on the roads.
