Kingii is the smallest inflatable floatation device around

If you or your loved ones spend a lot of time around the water, concern about drowning has to be on your mind. Lifejackets can be uncomfortable and because of that many people won't wear them leaving them without a safety net if something goes wrong in the water. A new personal inflatable has debuted called Kingii and it is claimed to be the smallest inflatable in the world.

Kingii is a small wearable that has a strap like a watch and is designed to be worn on the wrist. When the shiny silver handle is pulled, a small personal flotation cushion fills with air automatically and pulls the wearer to the surface of the water.

Once at the surface the wearer can pull the Kingii inflatable to them and hold on to float while help arrives. The inflation bag is bright orange and looks a bit like a whoopee cushion. The wrist strap has a compass and a whistle attached to help people find where they are and call for help.

Kingii is designed to be reusable and uses a small CO2 cartridge to inflate the bag, even when under water. That CO2 canister can be replaced. Kingii is seeking $65,000 and has raised over $412,000 with 29 days to go on the project at Indiegogo. A pledge of $69 will get you a Kingii and the replacement cylinders are $6 for a pair.
