PowerVision, a global technology company that leads the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) industry with smart drones, today announces that its newest innovative marine product, the PowerDolphin, is now available from Harrods in the UK.
With a sleek, streamlined design, the PowerDolphin is an intelligent, multifunctional water drone. Offering the ability to capture impressive 4K high-definition images, intelligent fish finding functionality and search and rescue support, the PowerDolphin has been designed for water sports enthusiasts, underwater and wildlife photographers and fishermen as well as for emergency profession support. The PowerDolphin is available now from Harrods as well as www.powervision.me and Amazon UK with prices starting from £695.
The PowerDolphin is equipped with a unique dual-joint rotation 4K camera covering a staggering 215°. Shoot above the water level up to 80° and tilt down to shoot below water at -135°. Whether it is water sports (sailing, surfing, diving, canoeing, kayaking etc.) or the mysterious magnificent sea scenery users want to capture, they can see it all in glorious 4K. The 4K high-definition images and footage captured by the PowerDolphin can be sent in real-time wirelessly to a mobile phone through the Vision+ companion app, from a distance of 1000m.
Accompanying the dual-joint rotation camera, the front lights have four adjustable brightness levels, which rotate in balance with the camera, to shoot well-illuminated, stunning photos in different types of water.
In addition to its powerful imaging capability, the PowerDolphin can help fisherman find the best fishing spots. With the assistance of the included PowerSeeker, an intelligent fish finder, the PowerDolphin can detect fish within a range of 131ft (40m).
The remote-controlled PowerDolphin can directly tow hooks and lure fish by dropping bait to a desired location at up to 1,000m. Whether standing on the shore or on a boat, the PowerDolphin can greatly extend the fishing rod’s reach and allows users to watch and record the entire prey bite process through the 4K camera.
Combining the PowerDolphin and PowerSeeker helps anglers to accurately determine the best fishing spot and timing. Once the prey successfully bites, PowerDolphin will drag it back to the controller’s side, providing a completely new fishing experience.
Search and rescue support
With three different speed gears, the PowerDolphin can swim up to 5m per second, delivering attached lifebuoys, lifejackets, towlines and other rescue equipment timely and accurately.
Acting as the First Responder to arrive at the incident scene, PowerDolphin can carry and release remotely the necessary equipment faster than lifeboats by eliminating manual preparation and hull activation; and swimming faster than lifeguards at 5m/sec largely beats the Olympic Men’s 100m freestyle record of 2.17m/sec.
State-of-the-art hardware for scientific research
PowerDolphin has up to two hours of battery life, and is equipped with an intelligent sonar device + GPS waypoint cruise function. It can also automatically scan designated waters and draw underwater topographic maps by mounting a smart fish finder with path planning function on the Vision+ App and providing scientists with highly accurate data in a visual form, adding great value to their marine research.
Additional PowerDolphin features are a water touch switch, mobile phone control, return home function, and support for battery and SD card replacement. In addition, both waterproof glass design and automatic anti-roll technology amongst many other attributes, greatly enhances the drone’s ease of use and stability.
Wally Zheng, founder and CEO of PowerVision Technology Group said: “The PowerDolphin is a
new lifestyle drone that is not only suitable for photographers, fishermen and other water sports enthusiasts but also for rescue and scientific researchers, providing adventurers with a new perspective of life.”
