Even strong swimmers get tired. And if you doggie paddle into an unexpected current, or get separated from your waterfaring vessel, life jacket or not you may have some trouble getting yourself back to shore. Tom Agapiades created the Kingii as a low-profile complement to water baby pursuits. The wearable device secures at the wrist and, at the pull of a lever, releases an inflation bag that will pull you to the surface.
Kingii is powered by a replaceable CO2 cartridge, which detonates and inflates an 11" x 6" orange float on your cue. The wristband also has an attached whistle if you need more than a floatie's worth of help.
Once the CO2 cylinder is activated, the Kingii balloon inflates in seconds. Swap out used CO2 cartridges and you can reuse the device indefinitely.
