There’s the old method of catching fish, which involves tying some bait to a string and hoping for the best. It’s tried and true. People have been doing it basically forever.

Then there’s the new method, which involves an underwater robot, sonar, a 4K camera and a corresponding app. Sounds promising, doesn’t it?

The PowerRay is a smart fish finder that you drop into the water for the purpose of locating fish via the wonders of technology. The price hasn’t been announced yet, but it will be available for pre-order beginning February 27th. So plan your fishing trips accordingly.

Once in the water, this thing can dive down 30 meters and use sonar to find fish another 40 meters below that. It’s got a 4K camera plus WiFi (of course), and there’s an app (naturally) to keep you informed via your phone or tablet. So you’ll know the temperature, underwater landscape and fish distribution, and, best of all, you’ll see whatever that camera is pointing at. Which, in this case, should be fish. Then you just move toward them or cast your line in their general direction to make the game a whole lot easier.

If you’re looking to simplify things even more, you can attach some bait to the PowerRay and utilize a luring blue light to bring fish directly to the device.

Of course, when you tell the story to all your friends, you’ll mention how you were up against deck-high waves, a driving rain and pirates—but you persevered nonetheless to bring home that trout for dinner.

Your secret’s safe with us.
