When you put the project on the crowdfunding platform you wish to reach the investment goal as fast as possible. The BIKI bionic underwater fish drone is one of those who accomplished the goal in 24 hours.
A mini underwater 4k camera drone is designed to look like a fish and can keep its balance in the water to get better videos.
Even during high-speed motion or in darkness, BIKI is capable of stabilizing the camera for smooth videos and sharp photos by using an HD movement camera and an anti-shake camera platform that is based on an eccentric pan & tilt head.
BIKI has a pretty nice design. It looks like fish, is driven by the tail fin which helps him to control the direction of movement, can swim for 90-120 minutes, and at a depth of up to 196 feet. Even in the dark waters, it can be helpful for you thanks to the 2×114 lumen lights. Next great feature is the bionic sonar echo-location which offers the object’s location in the environment.
BIKI can launch sonic waves of different bandwidths through the internal transducer, which allows you to operate the camera in any water-medium, from the pool to the ocean, by using a controller.
The pictures and videos can be captured in 4k and easily shared through the live transmission to the smartphone or social media.
In addition to 4K UHD video, BIKI also supports 16-megapixel photography at 30 fps that offer the best view from underwater – even when operating at high-speed motion or in darkness.
Use the official BIKI app to see the underwater scenes and create your own routes for the underwater drone. If BIKI loses the connection, a built-in GPS makes it return to base and send an actual location to the smartphone.
