Las Vegas, NV, Jan 15, 2018 -- Navatics Technology, an innovator of underwater robots and a product partner of SENSEPLAY, unveiled the groundbreaking underwater drone MITO to global visitors at CES2018.MITO stands out in the recreational underwater drone market for its excellent underwater stability. Thanks to its sophisticated active stabilization algorithm developed by Navatics team, MITO can maneuver smoothly in the extremely complex underwater environment. Delivering high-quality 4K/30fps footage, MITO outperforms most underwater cameras available in the market. MITO can hover and steer steadily in strong currents and dive as deep as 130 feet. Powered by dual 1000-lm LED lights and red filter, MITO brings back color to the deep blue world. All above features are achieved in MITO’s compact body that weighs only 6.6lbs and fits into carry-on luggage together with all accessories.

MITO’s engineering excellence raises the bar of underwater video filming devices. Navatics team didn’t stop there but further enhanced the capabilities of MITO by partnering with SENSEPLAY, a product platform that empowers robotic devices with FPV (first-person-view) & AR features.
SENSEPLAY enables MITO to perform stable, real-time HD video transmission up to 1 kilometer. In comparison, existing underwater drones can only manage transmission in dozens of meters through conventional solutions such as Wi-Fi. By integrating SENSEPLAY’s FPV module, MITO can livestream underwater video images to the screen of SENSEPLAY surf remote control over an ultra-long distance. The real-time, immersive experience of deep blue ocean world can be shared with audience on the water surface and also be made possible to people who are not physically fit for underwater activities.

Andreas Widy Purnomo, co-founder of Navatics Technology and project leader of MITO, commented, “Navatics has a vision to create the best-of-breed underwater robots for filming enthusiasts. One of the daunting tasks in designing MITO was to transmit HD live streaming over a very long distance, up to hundred meters, and it's hard to achieve by the conventional WiFi method. We have integrated SENSEPLAY platform in just two months and the range is now measured by kilometers instead of meters. Meanwhile, Navatics team is also working with SENSEPLAY to add a series of AR-based features, such as ocean life identification and target auto-following. These unique capabilities really set MITO apart from its peers in the market“
MITO, under the support of SENSEPLAY platform, made its debut to global visitors at the recent CES 2018 and widely acclaimed by the crowd for its superior performance.
