Thinking inside the box

A great part of our DIY kit is in the handmade packaging we conceived, cause even that we wanted to be DIY and original.

We now have the 50 boxes that will lodge the pieces in our office, ready to mount/build.

Helping on that will be Bruno, our new industrial designer. Bruno is also brainstorming ideas on creating new shapes for Ziphius that you can incorporate in your creations. More on that later.

Here’s a current mockup of the box that will include our ziphiastic DIY kit.

Testing the final prototype

As you know, we’ve been testing Ziphius, and on our last post we said we would have new photos and info about the final prototype. Here you have it.

We’ve made some changes regarding size and form. The major visible differences are:

  • Easily replaceable motors;
  • Protection in the turbines for children safety;
  • Right turned and left turned propellers, for more stable behaviors;
  • Easiler way to detach Ziphius skin from the rest of the body;

These are the type of tests we’ve been doing:

  • Test of the new attach of the EPP

update01

  • Speed

update03

  • Image captures

update05

update07

  • Maneuverability – to see how easy is to make it swim straight

update04

We’ve also been busy making the DIY edition ready for you. We’ve ordered the components. Once we have these components, we will then test them and see if everything’s okay before we start sending them.

Keep tuned!
