Congrats to Team Ziphius, who won Engadget's Insert Coin innovation competition with their FPV mobile-controlled aquatic drone, and are now $25,000 further on their way to production 

From Engadget:

Now that our Insert Coin: New Challengers contestants had duked it out and the judges have made their decision, we have a winner: Ziphius. Not only did the bot win $20,000 thanks to deliberation by our judges, but it came home with our $5,000 reader's choice prize too. Victorious and $25,000 richer, the brains behind the aquatic drone joined us backstage to chat about their project. For the full interview, check out our video after the break.

Seeing a project/product gain this much attention and support makes me want to start a local Robotics Team to compete in events like this.  Chris you always share stuff that "drives our desire for drones even further up into the air" :) Thanks for keeping us motivated.
