CES 2019: Cyberfishing’s Smart Fishing Rod Sensor Upgrades Fishing Rods
Fishing can be done as a hobby or as a sport, but in any case, the Cyberfishing smart fishing rod catcher could soon prove to be essential gear for anyone looking to catch fish.
Cyberfishing’s Smart Rod Sensor, which turns normal fishing rods into smarter versions of themselves, is on display at CES 2019. The product is not yet launched, but it has already been shortlisted as a winner of the Innovation Awards at the annual event in Las Vegas. .
One of the things that sets the Cyberfishing Smart Rod sensor apart is that it’s not here to replace dumb gear. Instead, he seeks to improve them by tying them to the pole of the fishing rods using a few sturdy rubber bands. The device, which contains an accelerometer and rechargeable batteries, weighs only 9 grams, so it is unlikely to affect the performance of the fishing rod. It’s also waterproof, so anglers won’t have to worry about splashing water and getting wet hands.

Once attached, the Cyberfishing smart rod sensor records all fishing activity throughout the day. The device automatically captures data on the number of casts and surrounding weather conditions, including ambient temperature, precipitation, wind speed, wind direction and pressure. When a fish is caught, a push of the button instantly records all the details, including location.
At the end of the day, the Cyberfishing Smart Rod Sensor must then be connected to the Cyberfishing app on smartphones via Bluetooth to save all recorded data. Over time, the app will create a map of the fishing hot spots where the user has found the most success. The app will also record the weight, species, time and date of capture of trophy fish, while allowing users to create personal profiles with personalized Cyberfishing pages. Anglers who are part of the Cyberfishing online community will be able to upload their collected data and recorded images, to share information about fishing hot spots.
