2. FILMING ANGLES, USES AND MODES
What will iBubble do?
iBubble will follow divers underwater, filming quality images autonomously. Several filming modes will be available, including moves impossible for a diver to perform (such as rapid vertical climbs). Divers will easily switch between modes thanks to a convenient control bracelet. iBubble will also feature a manual mode for close-ups. Back to the surface, the divers will produce movies with minimal editing, share them with friends or use them to improve their technique.
Where will iBubble be positioned when filming the diver?
The location of the drone will depend on the location of the diver and the filming mode selected.
iBubble’s first version will analyze the best angle, keeping the bracelet at the center of the shot. But its wide angle will also capture the surroundings.
Which filming modes will be available?
Follow me: the camera remains near the diver and records what he sees. Marine life, corals, shipwrecks…
360° selfie: the drone completes a full circle around the diver, keeping the person at the center of the shot.
Zoom in / Zoom out: smooth transitions between wide-angle views and macro vision.
Manual mode: the diver takes a hold of iBubble, to record close-up images for instance.
What can I use it for?
iBubble will be useful to:
bring back memories from your underwater adventures
share your passion with people on land
create stunning movies
analyze your dives and improve your technique
scout a diving location before your group goes in the water
3. ABOUT iBUBBLE: ORIGINS, COST, TIMELINE…
How did you come up with this idea?
iBubble is the brainchild of Kevin Delfour and Xavier Spengler, keen divers, photographers and technology enthusiasts. They were looking for a way to film quality underwater videos without having to deal with heavy and cumbersome equipment. The idea of an autonomous wireless underwater camera imposed itself.
Delfour and Spengler turned to Startup Maker, the startup studio behind Hexo+ (1.3M$ on Kickstarter in 2014). The studio provided a complete business development and marketing support team.
Today, Nicolas Gambini and Benjamin Valtin are respectively CEO and Marketing&Sales Manager of Notilo+, the company created to support iBubble.
When will iBubble be in customers’ hands?
iBubble units will be shipped to customers in June 2017.
Is there already a functioning product?
Between July and December 2015, we’ve developed two technical prototypes to validate the positioning technology closed to the diver. It works well, even if it does not have its final design. By the end of the year, a prototype will integrate the same technology to the design final look, thanks to the funds raised in April.
What’s the extend of Guillaume Nery and Julie Gautier’s involvement in the project?
Guillaume Néry is a professional filmmaker as well as a world-class athlete. His partner, Julie Gautier, directed Gravity and other stunning underwater films. We’ve submitted our idea to them early on. They were taken by it and immediately started contributing to the project. Today, Guillaume Nery is acting as iBubble’s ambassador but also helps define technical characteristics, along with Julie Gautier.
4. TECHNICAL SPECS
Which cameras are compatible with iBubble ?
For our first version, we are working with GoProⓇ Hero versions 3 and 4.
Tell me about the engines
iBubble is equipped with 8 propellers
4 engines sit in the nozzles, at a 45° angle from the central axle. They propulse the drone forward and backward.
4 other engines enable upward and downward movements, as well as rotations. They also stabilize the drone.
Each engine is made of three 2.5” blades which can rotate in both directions.
You say that iBubble will be quiet, can you explain further?
iBubble doesn’t rely on a ballast system, so there are no actual bubbles! In addition to that, the engines are positioned inside the drone, where we’re trying to contain the noise. Our goal is for iBubble to be as discreet as possible. iBubble adapts to the marine environment, not the other way around.
Will iBubble film in low light conditions?
Thanks to integrated LED lights, iBubble will capture quality video, with brightened colors.
How will iBubble react to underwater currents?
This is one of the areas we’re focusing on at the moment (along with environmental impact and obstacle avoidance). iBubble is equipped with 8 engines and an inertial unit in order to counteract turbulences. It should be able to go to 3.2 ft/s max and 1.9 knots.
How will the batteries work?
iBubble is equipped with a battery pack of 2 LiPo (lithium) batteries lasting up to 1h in standard conditions (10 to 30°C / 50 to 86°F, 15 min lights usage, 1 m/s – 3.2 ft/s max. current)
Battery packs can easily be swapped
The batteries are encased in a waterproof box
What happens if iBubble runs out of battery?
We are aiming for a 1-hour battery life. When the battery will be nearly empty, iBubble will alert the diver with a set of LED lights. The diver will call iBubble back and hook it on his back. This will be particularly useful for drift dives. Another option will be for iBubble to resurface and send its GPS coordinates to the boat, while flashing a bright beacon. This could be useful for longer dives.
What if iBubble loses power or if there is an electrical failure in the water?
A CO2 cartridge will set off, automatically sending the drone to the surface.
How does the signal work underwater?
iBubble “speaks” to the diver via a control bracelet, using Ultra Short Baseline (USBL). This is the same low-frequency positioning system used by submarines. We use low power, low frequency signal, which presents no danger to divers or fishes.
How does one carry iBubble on land?
We’re really proud of our design, which takes in consideration feedback from our community of divers. With convenient handles and weighing only 5kg (less than 11lbs), the drone is a breeze to transport on land.
How will you ensure filming quality?
iBubble’s IMU (inertial measurement unit) is very precise and will allow for great stability.The 8 engines also help stabilize the droneWill the images be filtered?iBubble will provide an automatic filter system adapted to the conditions of the dive (depth, headlights on…).
Will the images be filtered?
iBubble will provide an automatic filter system adapted to the conditions of the dive (depth, headlight on…).
Will I be able to turn iBubble on and off at will?
iBubble will start swimming when the diver will put the button “ON” on the connected bracelet. It can be interrupted and restart recording underwater. Our aim is to free you from having to worry about your filming equipment, and let you enjoy your dive.
5. AFTER THE DIVE
I’m done recording. What now?
You will connect your phone, tablet or computer to your iBubble via Wifi or Bluetooth to upload and edit your video!
How should I take care of my iBubble?
Rinse it thoroughly with clear water after each dive and keep it in its case.
6. ENVIRONMENT AND SAFETY
What will be iBubble’s impact on the marine ecosystem?
Like most divers, we love our underwater world. Therefore, preserving it is high on our priority list. We’re crafting a drone that will be surprisingly quiet. This way, it won’t disturb and scare away marine life. The communication between iBubble and the diver works on a frequency and intensity marine mammals can’t be disturbed. The camera uses a sonar (also harmless) to avoid obstacles, be they fishes, corals or shipwrecks.
And what about corals?
Used in normal conditions, our drone will be able to avoid obstacles, i.e. corals, fish, shipwrecks, etc.
What if a shark bites iBubble?
The drone’s colors are picked so that they don’t attract predators (i.e. by avoiding strong contrast).
What if 3 divers in the same group have an iBubble?
Each drone responds to its own bracelet. One diver won’t be able to control another diver’s iBubble.
Will iBubble come with a warranty?
Yes, there will be a 1 year warranty for some parts. It won’t include the propellers, the dome, the handles, the beacons and improper use of the drone (such as depth).
Who would I send my iBubble to for repairs?
Certified iBubble resellers will be listed on our website. Look for the one nearest you.

(The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at https://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_015820 and a separate form for California residents at https://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_015822.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and GoPro otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and GoPro submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. GoPro will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, GoPro will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if GoPro changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these TOU (or accepted any subsequent changes to these TOU), you may reject any such change at GoPro Support within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of GoPro’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and GoPro in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these TOU (or accepted any subsequent changes to these TOU).
The failure of GoPro to enforce any right or provision of these TOU will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of GoPro. Except as expressly set forth in these TOU, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these TOU will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these TOU or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these TOU invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these TOU will remain in full force and effect.
