Less Than a Week Remains to Purchase BIKI, the World's First Bionic Unmanned Underwater Drone/Camera, at Discounted Crowdfunding Price during Kickstarter Campaign

More than 330 backers have committed more than $200,000 to be the first to have Roboseas BIKI – the unmanned underwater robot with built-in GPS that can maneuver nearly anywhere.

Less than a week remains to pre-purchase Roboseas BIKI, a new unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) designed with advanced bionics technology, at a discounted crowdfunding price as its successful campaign on Kickstarter draws to a close. Following the Kickstarter campaign, Biki will shift sales to Indiegogo InDemand.

"Were excited by our success during our first Kickstarter campaign and really thank all those backers who want to be the first to explore with the worlds first bionic underwater drone," said Dr. Minglei Xiong, CEO of Robosea, the company that developed the BIKI.
Crowdfunders have invested more than $200,000 for BIKI, the worlds first underwater robot with dual reconfigurable tail fin that is easily be controlled with any smart device.
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 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, can run up to 120 minutes on a single charge - and can operate at depths of nearly 200 feet.
BIKI features include:
