Ziphius: An aquatic drone selected for the Insert Coin contest


Hello everyone,

Let me introduce you all this project that I'm deeply involved with.
It's an aquatic drone controlled by your smartphone or tablet and it's called Ziphius.
Although we are still in an early stage of development, we already have a fully functional prototype.
At this moment we're having lots of fun creating AR Games using its camera.

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.


Thank you.  :)

The voting is open now! If you like our little Ziphius, please vote for us on:

to give us a chance of going to San Francisco and be on top 5! 

Thank you  :D

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 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: 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  winners!

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


Thank you so much for all your support.
