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.

What’s in a name?

Choosing a name for our drone was not easy but with plenty of brainstorming we finally made a decision. Turns out choosing the name of the goose beaked whale – Ziphius Cavirostris – was a good match. At that time we did not know how similar they would look!

Like Ziphius Cavirostris, our drone is fast and can amaze you by playing in the water…

…it also has a dorsal fin. Even the yellowish shades in its black body are similar to our top color choice…

…and they both float like they are waiting for the best chance to surprise you.

First log

Here at Azorean we are joining forces to make it possible for Ziphius to find you. Our little aquatic drone is getting ready to brave the wild and we want to share the amazing adventure that developing it has been. With super intuitive handling and unique design, Ziphius achieves spectacular water rides, being the first smartphone-controlled aquatic drone of a new generation to come.

Ziphius can be your fun factor in swimming pools, lakes, oceans and more. How? With an integrated camera, which captures above and below the water level images, you can photograph/film all you want and share it with your friends! With our control app installed in your smartphone or tablet you can command your Ziphius via WI-FI and play Augmented Reality Games while piloting it. It’s a whole new world to explore.

For now, Ziphius is just a prototype. We are working hard to make it a truly functional product, or better, your new friend and companion. Azorean has been a rollercoaster. Daily, we have to deal with a lot of different creative and technological situations: new discoveries are made, solutions to problems are arranged and we have to keep on top of our marketing efforts to reach out to people and find out what features they’d like Ziphius to offer. Not to mention all the fun involved in Ziphius’ development! 🙂

Keep synched to our blog which will have all the latest news about Ziphius, its making, developments and Azorean, the company that brings it to you. Updates to the blog will probably be as frenetic as our work pace here at the office is. We can’t wait to show you the final product in action!
