FishSpy is a marker float with an integrated underwater camera that streams live video via WiFi to your smartphone, allowing you to see what’s happening below. You can see what’s on the lakebed, watch as fish interact with your bait—see if one took off with it. Once you hook one and it takes off the float will get submerged and you’ll lose the love streaming, but the camera keeps recording onto internal memory (SD card), which you can play back later.
Living in BC, this is not the kind of fishing I do anymore, but it might make a cool gift for my kids. I have to say, when I first saw it I couldn’t help thinking that this was a pretty clever application for WiFi, cheap cameras and smartphones, so hats off to the UK inventors.
