Gábor Király came up with an idea three years ago and created 78 different prototypes until his invention was ready for commercialization. The creators invested thousands of hours in drawing, designing and creating various prototypes to bring this product idea to market.

The inventor and founder of Arken Life is now ready to launch a crowdfunding campaign in order to fund his venture and produce inventory of his inflatable water safety device.

Together with designer Zsuzsanna Szentkeressy-Nagy and Chief Technology Officer Ernő Wirth, they came up with swimwear with a pull cord and an inflatable life belt that keeps swimmers in distress at the surface of the water. The product works up to a 120 kg (265 lb.) swimmer and uses a 16-gram CO2 cartridge filled with compressed air.
