By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, April 1, 2023 @ 06:00 AM (EST)

Known for their highly innovative strobe technology, Retra has announced its smartest underwater strobe yet. The Retra Flash can already connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and now the company is making it even smarter by adding the latest voice recognition technology.

Retra says their new underwater strobe will become your personal assistant, responding to your commands and making your underwater photography experience more effortless than ever before. The company gave few details about the technology, but provided the following short video to demonstrate how sophisticated the system is in use.
