Team hobbies II

Hello dear friends!

Our team was out for some well deserved holidays in the past weeks. Apart from relaxing, free time also means “hobbying”, doing things that we like but usually don’t have much time to pursue when we’re working. In this post, we give you the second part of our “Team hobbies”! Hope you all had lovely vacations. Here at the office we are full of energy, ready to work on finishing up Ziphius for you guys! 🙂

A little behind the scenes

Remember our GoPro video, the one we showed you two posts back? Yeah?

Well maybe you’ve been wondering how the last part was done (beginning at 1:07). This is the answer:

While the majority of the video feautured the GoPro on top and below the Ziphius, for this part we aggregated it to this hand made metal arch.

Ziphius DIY Edition

Ziphius is an highly customizable aquatic drone. Here at the office, we’ve been coming up with ideas on how you can do modify Ziphius.

Want to also be able to control Ziphius on land? You can attach some wheels to it.

Owner of a GoPro camera? We attached one to one of our prototypes.

As you can see, there are a lot of possibilities. Because of that we’ve just added a new reward for the DIYers/hobbyists on our Kickstarter page. If you have an imaginative mind and are always creating new stuff, this is your chance to make your own HD camera equipped drone (all the electronics included). Get the Ziphius DIY edition for only $99. More info here.

Ziphius, your personal buttler

We are testing new ways to personalize Ziphius™ with a completely new style!

In this outfit version, with a removable lid, there’s a round hole so you can transport, for example, a soda can.

Weighing Machine

So we don’t have to go to the beach every time we want to test Ziphius we do ally the technical with the creative!

A digital weighing machine assembled to this orange bucket can be transformed to a testing setup. We use it to measure the power and the efficiency of Ziphius’ motors. 

Stay tuned. 😉
