Pikotech was born from the desire of two engineers fond of spearfishing, Alessandro and Filippo. Both of them with experience in design and with the will to create innovative, compact, efficient, very robust, user-friendly video devices, that are particularly suitable for spearfishing, which by the nature of the activity, puts to hard test every kind of equipment.
The two engineers fond of spearfishing are known in the web with their nicknames "Pippocci" and "Persiko". They are famous for their will to improve the commercial products for the underwater videos recording.
At the end of 2011, following a frequent correspondence of emails between them, exchanging ideas and projects, a powerful synergy and collaboration rises between them. The first drawings of the action camera Intrepida HD takes form. Everything is kept in secret because they are writing a patent about the camera. In May 2012, the patent about Intrepida HD is submitted and after that the camera is shown on the web. It is a hit with the spearfishers. All people appreciate the innovative features of this camera.The two engineers think that this situation must bring to the constitution of a company because the camera Intrepida HD has many requests from the people.
In July 2012 the Pikotech s.n.c. is established. The first part of the name (Piko) comes from the nicknames of the two company promoters: PI-ppocci and persi-KO. The second part of the name (tech) indicates the technology component that is in the products.
Pikotech owns in the catalogue also adapters, brackets, modified optics, etc.
Pikotech has the target to satisfy needs of very robust and user-friendly video equipment, suitable for the most extreme environmental conditions.
From November 2015 Pikotech introduces a range of products for extreme underwater mimicry: the CRYPTIK.
