Ziphius, the aquatic drone Answered

Hello everyone,

Ziphius is an aquatic drone controlled by your smartphone or tablet.
Although we are still in stage of development, we already have a fully functional prototype. This prototype has a Pi and Arduino inside. Right now, we are using Unity for the games development. It will be available to both Android and iOS.

If you're interested, check our video:

Your feedback is very important for us, specially now that we have been selected to be one of the semi-finalists on the Insert Coin competition, organized by Engadget.

FINAL VOTING! Ziphius needs your vote this weekend!

We did it! We secured a position as one of the top five finalists in Engadget Expand’s Insert Coin competition! Now, we need your help once again.

Our team is heading to San Francisco, on March 16th and 17th, to present Ziphius on stage and convince readers and judges (including top notch Ryan Block, co-founder of gdgt and Jim Newton, founder of TechShop) that we deserve to take home the top prize. We’ll handle the stage part but YOU have a major role in it too: as a reader, you can help us get to first place by voting for Ziphius!

Online voting during the event is one of three criteria to win the top prize. The other two are audience voting and the judge´s opinion. So, take a little time during your weekend, go to http://myziphius.com and make Ziphius a winner.

The whole event will be live streamed during the weekend so you can watch all the action. Tune in here: http://www.engadget.com/event/engadget-expand/about/. If you want to watch Ziphius highlights you can tune in online on the 16th March from 3PM to 3:45PM (Pacific Standard Time) where you will see us presenting Ziphius. On the 17th from 5:30PM to 6:15PM (Pacific Standard Time) the Insert Coin Award winners will be announced and live streamed. With your support we can be one of the winners!

WHEN: Final Voting will take place March 16th, 8AM (Pacific Standard Time) till March 17th NOON (Pacific Standard Time).
