The XPRIZE competition allowed SEA-KIT International to increase awareness, drive motivation and take the next steps that ocean technology so desperately needed for the future of our planet.

Our time of reflection was short, we dived back into research and testing to ensure we start creating a real impact. Our future plans will all be revealed soon, but until then it’s good to focus on what the other teams achieved and how robotics in the maritime industry can change the world for the best.

The Robot Report released an article that goes into details of all the teams, the competition and the future. An article that helps explain why it all matters.

Innovation is key!
