If you’re in a car, you wear a seatbelt, if you’re on a bike, you wear a helmet, but what to you wear to stop drowning when you are in water?
An amazing new wrist-worn device called a Kingii is lightweight, durable, and, best of all, it inflates instantly to prevent drowning. Even the best swimmers can find themselves in bad positions or situations sometimes, and Kingii is the answer to that problem.
According to NBC News :
The wristband has two compartments — in one is a small inflatable like a water wing, and in the other is a CO2 cartridge that holds the compressed air to fill it up. Once triggered with a lever, according to the inventor, the Kingii will inflate and lift someone as heavy as 275 pounds to the surface and keep them there — where they can get their bearings or call for help with the built-in compass and whistle.
A minor catch is that the CO2 cartridges are only available from Kingii, so they naturally cost more than the ones used for BB guns and soda makers. But for something that only needs to be used in an emergency, an extra buck or two isn’t too much to handle. Right now Kingii is raising money on Indiegogo for the first manufacturing run of the device — you can pre-order one starting at $79 .
