None of us over here at Ubergizmo are fishing experts, and we tend to fish for Facebook comments and interaction with our dear readers more than the scaled and finned variety, but we are definitely down for some sushi as well as salmon steak if we were famished. Still, the Indiegogo project known as the Smartrod might be useful for anglers, and if you are one who loves to be out in the open sea or lakes to wait patiently for a bite, why not share your insight on whether the Smartrod could be useful to you?
Edward Hope is the one behind what he calls the “world’s first and only computerized fishing pole using Computer Controlled Accelerometer Technology.” Right now, they have collected half a grand out of the $50,000 required to bring this project to life, and you might want to offer them some financial support if you believe in their idea.
Basically, the Smartrod will inform you whenever you get a bite via an audio or visual alert, and turn off the alert when you reel in the fish so that your fishing experience will not be interfered with. There is a digital readout for High Med or Low sensitivity settings.
