About the solution
The gadget works as underwater airbag, and is worn as a bracet. In case of the user being in trouble in the water, he tugs on the bracelet, and the device inflates and lifts him to the surface in a matter of seconds.
“When you drive a car, you put your seatbelt on. When you ride a bike, you put on a helmet. But how do you protect yourself in the water? No one swims around with a lifejacket on, and that’s when they get in trouble”, he noted.
Kingii costs $79, and can hoist a person weighing as much as 125 kgs, and can keep the user aflote for as long as necessary. It has also a buit-in whistle to help get attention by recuers.
