Lego ROV Jason II
Jason is a 6500 meter rated Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The vehicle was designed and built in 2002 and has completed over 800 dives. His job is to provide a platform for scientists to remotely reach the ocean floor and gather observations and obtain samples to further understand our oceans, the Earth, and ultimately the universe. Jason has been diving to undersea volcanos, hydrothermal vent fields, shipwrecks, and many other areas of interest.
Two operating six function manipulators
Cameras on working pan and tilts
Fully functioning swing arms and science basket
Set of push cores
As a pilot of Jason myself, I wanted to celebrate this relatively unknown icon by designing a Lego replica and hopefully bring Ocean Science and Engineering to a wider audience.
Thank you very much for supporting this project!
