If I had a Ziphius

Our team is quite  a diverse bunch! But we all love gadgets and games. This passion, combined with our islander condition, lead us to produce an affordable aquatic gadget, since it’s a market yet to explore.

Last summer we’ve started getting ourselves busy on developing our first prototype. At that time we used tupperware and foam (oh yes!!) to start riding in the water. In the following months we’ve refined the electronics and the design that enabled us to build a more sophisticated prototype and enter the Engadget competition, which we won last March. From that point, we have been working in preparing our Kickstarter campaign and establishing all the details for Ziphius’ mass production, to make us ready to start with it as soon as the Kickstarter campaign is successfully funded.

Ziphius is our dream coming true but we believe that Ziphius makes others dream too. So we’ve asked the community: what would you do if you were a Ziphius owner. And this is what we’ve got. 🙂

You can get one Ziphius now at Kickstarter!

Ziphius is on Kickstarter!


The wait is over. Ziphius is finally on Kickstarter! How can you show us your support?

a) By helping to fund the project: the pledge starts at $1 and goes up to $7,500. Our end-goal is $125,000.

b) By sharing our page with everyone you know: family, friends, co-workers, just about everyone! Let’s get social networking!

It’s a great opportunity to invest in something really unique! We really believe that with your help, we will be successfully funded and Ziphius will finally become a reality. 

Don’t forget: the campaign ends in 29 days!

Thanks a zillion! 😉

Congrats Snapzoom!

Congrats to Snapzoom and best of luck in the future, which seems veryyyy bright 🙂

Ziphius team met the Snapzoom founders on the Engadget competition in March. After that, Snapzoom entered the crowdfunding world through Kickstarter. On May 26, their campaign had a successful end, raising its funding goal!

We loved to meet Snapzoom at Engadget: it’s innovative and useful. That’s why we’ve been supportive since the beginning. If you’re attentive, you can see that Ziphius is making a little appearance on their Kickstarter page (pay attention to the background).
