China’s Geneinno To Bring Poseidon I And New Underwater Drones To CES

China-based underwater drone maker, Geneinno, has been around for quite a while, but it is only this year, the team is taking its unmanned underwater vehicle, or UUV, to the world’s biggest electronic show, CES in Vegas. The company will be showcasing the Poseidon I underwater drone to establish its presence. Powered by three thrusters, the Poseidon I gets an 1/2.9-inch CMOS sensor with 120-degree lens, capable of FHD videoing in H.264/Flv format and captures still in JPEG format onto a 32 GB micro SD card.
