Ziphius can be controlled by apps on most Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. Although, these apps can do a lot more than just remote control, including augmented reality games and artificial intelligent based apps.

The initial version of Ziphius will come with a remote control app that lets you pilot it and take pictures or video.

They will be rolling out an app development program to further explore the different personality traits of Ziphius so it can become a pirate, a ninja, an acrobat and whatever the community can imagine!
