about us

Bluebox srl is a company based in Italy made of professionals dedicated to the underwater photography world. Our team is currently made of 8 people, software engineers and developers, UW photographers, managers and social media experts but first we’re all great Ocean lovers and for this reason our company was founded comprising several activities dedicated to the Ocean; www.scubashooters.net and all its related social media channels, Scubashooters emagazine and www.deepvisions.photo are also part of the Bluebox company.

Developing in software house, running UW photo contests and managing websites and social medias since 2012 is the background on which the Nautismart project was conceived. It took a while to bring it to life because as all other Bluebox’s activities it’s been developed from scratch.

Now Nautismart pro is here, with a patent pending on it and being a worldwide trademark . We have developed it to be simple to use, sturdy, reliable and affordable and we are sure you will enjoy using it. We have imagined it so to be the best underwater smart housing for smartphones and we are sure you will love it. Choose your preferred color and imagine its use not only to take UW photos while diving, but also while snorkeling, on the beach, at the pool, while jumping with your parachute or using your bike.

There are endless possibilities for you to turn your smartphone into an action cam. You will likely always have a smartphone right? With Nautismart Pro you just have to worry about updating your smartphone… with just little care Natismart Pro will ensure years of service to come.
