We interacted with hundreds of people from the diving community (scuba divers, free divers, underwater movie professionals, scientists…) in order to gather user feedback from experts and amateurs. Our motivation was simple: we absolutely needed to know what YOUR dream underwater camera would be. Because we believe that is the only way to deliver a great product.
We identified the fields of expertise required to make iBubble work, from hydrodynamics and energy management to signal processing and embedded software. We then developed a proof of concept (a real-life feasibility test to make sure our technical hypothesis was valid) on the most critical technological breakthrough: underwater positioning.
After validating this proof of concept, we now have finalized our final prototype – which you can see in this video – and full scale production will start soon!
