Vythos was distinguished from many other exhibitors by the fact that “the design is operative and more than just a concept,” says Clara who demonstrated the technology in action using videos obtained from deployments in the Red Sea and footage from the latest field trip in the Atlantic Ocean. The general audience was “really impressed” with the smart design and minimal environmental impacts of the technology.
