KastKing® Presents New Kayak Fishing Rod

More back bone and high performance are key features in a new Kayak Rod from KastKing®.

Garden City, Long Island, NY (July 10, 2015) -- Today, KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc. based in Garden City, Long Island, NY announced the addition of a new kayak fishing rod, the KastKing® HD Phantom Kayak Rod. It will debut at ICAST in Orlando Florida on July 15, 2015.

KastKing’s® new versions HD Phantom Kayak Rods were derived from technology and development of Eposeidon’s highly successful patent-pending KastKing® Phantom Kayak Rods. KastKing® HD Phantom Kayak Rods features include heavy power, fast action, 7’ length, and are manufactured for 15 – 40 lb. line, 1 oz. – 4 oz. lure weight. Phantom Heavy Power Kayak rods come in casting and spinning models. They have AAA cork handles, rod leash rings, and a fish measurer on the backbone of the rod.

KastKing’s® HD Phantom Kayak Rods have a unique Micro Polish finish that eliminates sanding the rod blank resulting in 10% more strength than other rods. There is no need for paint, which adds weight and insulates the guide foot from the blank reducing sensitivity. KastKing® fishing rods are made with the finest materials available. Special design, durable 24-ton, high-grade, tightly woven carbon fiber sheets creates the foundation of every KastKing’s® HD Phantom Kayak Rod blank. The extra tightness of the weave results in more backbone, farther casting, consistent action, and more power. To enable more accurate casts KastKing® fishing rods are checked for straightness with infrared lasers.

As with our new inshore rods, KastKing® is responding to requests for a high performance kayak rod with more load capability to target muskie, bull reds, big striped bass, small sharks and other large species,” says Tom Gahan, marketing director at Eposeidon.

The rods were designed with input from angler consultants on Team Eposeidon, most notably Team Eposeidon member Elias Vaisberg who qualified twice for the Hobie International Fishing Challenge by winning the Jamaica Bay Classic with Grand Slam finishes two years in a row.

Spinning and Casting models of the KastKing HD Phantom Kayak Rod carry a MSRP of $106.98. Both will retail through http://www.eposeidon.com for $86.98.

Peratech's Pressure Sensitive QTC® Technology Enables New Smartphone Case To Incorporate Game Controller Joysticks

World's first smartphone case with rear action joysticks.

Richmond, North Yorks, England (July 10, 2015) -- Peratech, providers of pressure-based enabling technologies for innovating next generation human-machine interfaces, has announced that its Quantum Tunnelling Composite® pressure-sensitive sensors have been used in the new Flitchio™ smartphone case with built-in game controller. Instead of having control interfaces on the screen that obscure the screen area used for gaming, Flitchio has two shoulder buttons and two ultrathin joysticks on the back surface of the case.

Dr. Amir Shadmand, CEO and Co-Founder of SUPENTA, makers of Flitchio, explained, "Peratech enabled us to solve our challenges of making the joysticks sensitive, accurate and thin so that they fitted into a normal thickness smartphone case. In addition, QTC technology is extremely efficient -- using hardly any current, so we can power our system wirelessly just with the NFC antennas in the smartphone. Peratech worked closely with us to help with sensor design and integration. The result is a world's first and a real game changer."

Jon Stark, Peratech's CEO, added, "QTC technology has been used to provide touch sensitivity for mobile phones before but this is the first time that someone has created a QTC-based product that uses the back of a device. SUPENTA did a great job designing a control in which your fingers fall naturally onto the joysticks. It takes only a few moments to become used to using fingers on the back of the case to control the action. It's a totally intuitive device for natural hand-eye coordination and a perfect example of QTC technology enabling user experience innovations."

Flitchio simply snaps onto the phone and links in moments by NFC so that it can be used to play dozens of popular games, to pilot drones, to take a selfie with the back of the phone, to be a remote for Smart TVs, and to drive many more applications using a software development kit. The case is initially built for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but SUPENTA intends to make cases for other smartphones in the future. Prices will start from £39 including VAT with availability in early 2016.

Said Shadmand, "We chose Peratech QTC technology because it's effectively a sensitive, consistent solid-state force sensor that will give us the operational life we need in the demanding world of mobile gaming."
