Robosea is pleased to announce the success of BIKI on Kickstarter– a new unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) designed with advanced bionics technology that has now raised $200,000 with over a month remaining in the crowdfunding campaign.
BIKI is the world’s first bionic underwater drone that can easily be controlled with a smart device, and the world’s first underwater robot with dual reconfigurable tail fin.
“We’re very thankful for the support we’ve received thus far from our backers,” said Dr. Minglei Xiong, CEO of Robosea. “It validates the hard work we have put into building BIKI and we hope many enjoy its unique features.”
BIKI supports 4k video as well as 16-megapixel photography at 30 fps, offering the best view from underwater – even when operating at high-speed motion or in darkness. In the event of a lost connection, a built-in GPS module makes BIKI automatically return to base or send real-time locations to mobile devices.
With an infrared positioning sensor, BIKI can avoid obstacles automatically and adapt to different complex environments intelligently and operates from 90-120 minutes on a single charge, and can operate at depths of nearly 200 feet.
BIKI features include:
