CES is one of the world’s biggest tech shows that takes place each year!!
It’s something that I always look forward to, because this is the place where I get to learn about all of the upcoming interesting gadgets for the year. It’s very exciting, unnecessary to say. During the one that was held this year in Las Vegas, I discovered many different devices coming out, but I have to admit, it was the drones that really caught my attention and the new smart phones too.
While there were many different drones being announced by companies like Yuneeq and DJI, in this article and review, I am going to talk about a unique drone that was publicized – the PowerVision Power Dolphin. Why is it unique? Just let me explain …
Powervision, as you may already know, is a well-known creator of drone-related products based in Beijing. When they unveiled their new underwater drone, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It’s actually shaped like a dolphin (no joke) and this “vehicle” can do a whole lot more than just swim around in the water and capture footage.
Ultra-High Definition Photos
The PowerDolphin is capable of capturing ultra-high definition photos and footage at 30 FPS, but that isn’t all. From there, it can even stream it to the user at 1080p, which is really good. You can remotely rotate the camera up to 135 degrees, with a 215-degree viewing angle.
This cool and interesting feature just so happens to be one of my favorite features about the PowerDolphin drone.
I like when a drone is fun, but when there’s a “life-saving” feature built in, that really makes it stand out from the crowd in my reviews. Basically, it was designed in a way to deliver a tow cable to anyone that is in danger of drowning. How cool is that?
A Drone with a Fish Detector
If you like to fish, then this might just be your next best drone! You see, the PowerDolphin uses sonar and can detect fish that are as far as 131 feet away and once the fish has been detected, the bait is released. I’ve looked at many other underwater drones, and this one right here is far more sophisticated than any I have ever looked at before.
Believe me! This drone is really amazing.
It appears as if there is a clear intent behind the design – to catch fish and save lives, much like a dolphin.
PowerDolphin! A Great Drone for Adventurous People
If you’re an adventurous person, then the PowerDolphin would be a great gadget for you matching to your lifestyle. It is suitable for water sports, fishing, photography, and even good for scientific researchers and rescue situations.
A Drone with a 4K Footage
PowerDolphin can record 4K footage, which is stored on a MicroSd card – the MicroSD card slot is encased in the hull where it is protected from the water. I also enjoy the fact that it can live-stream video directly to the user during operation.
A useful Headlight
The PowerDolphin has a headlight at the front of it!
The headlight makes it so that the user can see clearly once the dolphin has reached a depth that is too dark to see or record anything.
Battery Life of the Drone
Surely you are wondering about the battery life.
I could not believe it! One more aspect that I like about this underwater drone is the fact that it is capable of swimming for up to two hours. Yes, this is true! And that is much better than the 30 minutes flying on one charge of the other drones.
The Return Home Feature
In my Drones’ reviews, the return home feature is something that is always welcome.
This helps to ease the stress of losing our special drone and it comes in handy with this drone, since it only has a range of one-mile.
The PowerVision PowerDolphin released on stores’ shelves in April and will be set at a price of $749.
As I said, it is great for adventure lovers, people doing scientific research and even lifeguards.
If you’re looking for an underwater drone that has all of the neat bells and whistles attached, then this one right here is highly recommended.
You can find it and purchase it online and in Amazon too in a very fair price.
