Unveiled at tech and business conference CEBIT in Sydney on Tuesday, UAM Tec's "Sub Mapping" technology is the first fully autonomous and visual-based mapping submarine to exist in the world.

Billed as the underwater equivalent of Google Maps Street View, the roughly one-meter long, football-shaped submarine's inventors hope one day to create immersive visual representations of what lies beneath vast swathes of the world's oceans, lakes, and waterways.
