Powerray is designed to pinpoint and send real-time images back to people fishermen

Recently showcasing its technology in CES 2017, startup powervision is gearing up to transform the recreational fishing industry with PowerRay, an underwater drone that can dive as deep as 30 meters and detect fish 40 meters away. Designed for freshwater, saltwater and even ice fishing, the drone promises to make fishing effortless for users.

With an accompanying app called ‘fishfinder,’ powerray can send real-time 4K resolution images of fish it has detected via built-in sonar systems, alongside pictures of the underwater landscape and temperature data from up to 80 meters away.

The device pairs with iOS and Android, and provides live positioning data, as well as customizable travel modes and light setting options for luring fish.

Once the drone has piqued the interest of a subaquatic critter, a subtle remote bait is dropped, removing the struggle of fighting against a flailing 50-pound fish.

In addition to the highlighted technology, powervision also offers an immersive virtual reality experience, available through the company’s exclusive VR headset. With an underwater view, the drone provides a gamified fishing experience controlled through head-tilting motions, letting you play predator through the eyes of a sea creature.
