When you’re surrounded by apps and devices, it’s amazing to discover that you can’t find a waterproof headset that wirelessly streams audio above and below water. So water sports enthusiasts Charlie and Sheera set out to solve this problem. It turns out that Bluetooth doesn’t work underwater, so a radio frequency transmitter and a special antenna are required to convert the signal. After a bit of R&D, and innovative technology was developed and patented, tech startup company Zygo was founded.
Outerspace Design was contacted to help turn the intellectual property into a market-ready product. There were still considerable challenges to overcome, including mechanical engineering, waterproofing, electronics integration, heat dissipation, and optimisation for mass production.
