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.

Halfway Milestone!

IMG_0937

We are pleased to announce we have passed the halfway mark to our funding goal! To celebrate, we asked ourselves “What can we have Ziphius do that is different?” We already added a ton of new features or updates including;

  • We doubled the onboard memory for all reward levels
  • We built  support for Go-Pro cameras
  • We added a Ziphius “light” version that comes in at only $199.00
  • We created a patriotic “Stars and Stripes” version of Ziphius
  • We engineered a $99.00 DIY edition so you can build your own drone

Whew! We’ve been busy. But we realized Ziphius had still not escaped into the wild blue yonder. Ziphius would need to fly. We thought about it and in the end it was as simple as the house in the Pixar Film, “UP.” BALLOONS! A ton of balloons.

There are a lot of amazing and creative things like this that you can do with Ziphius. We wonder how long until someone builds a Ziphius Blimp with our $99.00 DIY kit! 😉 Check our Kickstarter campaign to find out about all our updates and new rewards. Get yourself the cutest aquatic drone ever 🙂

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.

Ideas on how to use Ziphius for fishing

Ziphius could be your perfect partner for fishing!

Ziphius Fishing

By using its camera, you can see where’s fish, what are the best spots for fishing, among other things.

It’s so exciting that some people are already thinking about Ziphius applications for fishermen and sharing them with us! We received some videos from Finland featuring Jaakko Raukola and Mikko Unkila. These videos were received when we asked you to tell us what would you use Ziphius for, the challenge of our previous video and post. This is one of the most creative submissions to appear in our inbox in which these fishermen show us some of the ways Ziphius could be very useful in this area. Thanks guys!

Be part of our family by sending us your response video to: hello@yatlantic.com.

Grab one at a special price while you still can at Kickstarter. We are almost getting halfway through as well is the funding! Thanks for your support and sharing so far. More surprises are coming!
