ZiphiusTM, brainchild of spin-out company Azorean, the first aquatic drone controlled by a smartphone or tablet, secured a position as one of the top five finalists in Engadget’s Expand Insert Coin Competition!
We couldn’t be more excited and on March 16th and 17th, as one of the top five final projects, Team Ziphius will be getting time on stage in San Francisco to convince readers and judges alike that they deserve to take home the top prize of $20,000. MAKE Magazine Editor-in-Chief and Boing Boing co-editor Mark Frauenfelder will be at Expand to help present the top five projects. The list of judges includes four of the biggest names from the world of design, DIY, crowdfunding and gadget blogging. Exciting and a little scary!
