Bubl Product Prototyping… Underwater
One topic that has already been posted in the Community section of our Support Centre that we are taking action on, are waterproof housings for the Bublcam. Our firmware engineer, Ed Shen tested out a prototype while on his travels to Hawaii. We’re still early in prototyping possible housings, but the Bublcam performed really well on this journey! Head over to our Xplor app to experience the full bubl.
The Community section of our Support Centre is a place we encourage you to post feedback and product suggestions to help us build our roadmap. We will continue to use this Community topic thread to update you on progress with our prototyping efforts so follow the topic if you’d like to stay in the loop.
This week a new update to our Android app was released. We hope that you will test it and let us know if you see improvements, particularly concerning the advancements made to wifi connectivity to improve stability between device and the Bublcam. Your feedback is important to us so get in touch with your Bublcam Assistant, let us know in Slack or in the Community.
