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 goes Pro!

Ziphius Gopro 2

If you are a frequent reader of our blog you have surely read our post about the GoPro camera as one of Ziphius’ customization options. If not, we’ll break it down for you.

Ziphius teamed up with GoPro and the result was rrrrrrrealy cool. Well, yeah, you might be asking yourself “Doesn’t Ziphius already have a camera?”. Yes it does. But now you can capture images with your GoPro by riding Ziphius and have two cameras for simultaneous multiple footage. There are many water lovers that own a GoPro camera that might want to try it out on the Ziphius. It’s totally possible with a GoPro Mount, just plug it into Ziphius and play. THAT’S RIGHT FOLKS! Endless possibilities!! 🙂

We aim to give you the absolute freedom to choose what’s the best suited Ziphius for you and what you can do to it, according to your personal tastes, needs or interests! If you have more ideas you can comment below to let us now! Once you have a Ziphius you can customize it and send us photos of your transformed drone. 

But for now, BACK US UP! Only 2 days left, crazy.

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 🙂
