Kingii Aims to Save People from Drowning

Anyone who spends time in or near the water with young kids or performing action sports has to be concerned with accidents that could lead to drowning. It can be hard to get people of any age to wear a life jacket at all times because a bulky lifejacket isn’t comfortable. A new device called Kingii has turned up on Indiegogo that aims to make wearing a flotation device as comfortable as possible.

Kingii isn’t something you wear on your body like a shirt or jacket. This is a device worn on the wrist like a watch. It’s considerably more bulky than a watch, but is sized so that kids and adults can wear it. When needed, the wearer pulls a silver lever on the Kingii wearable and a small flotation cushion pops out and inflates automatically.

Inflation is performed by a CO2 cartridge and that cartridge is replaceable making the device reusable. Kingii is on Indiegogo to raise $65,000 and has raised over $412,000 so far with 29 days left on the campaign. A pledge of $69 will get you a Kingii with ship time unspecified. Replacement CO2 canisters will cost you $6 per pair.

New Star Trek Movie Will Be Called ‘Star Trek Beyond’

Here’s some news for Star Trek fans. The third new Star Trek has been confirmed and it will be called Star Trek Beyond. The director Justin Lin let the news out via Twitter and the tweet included an image of the delta shield on a retro looking uniform sleeve patch.

The movie is currently under production right now and is being shot in Vancouver. It will feature the return of Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, and Idris Elba. Fans have had a mixed reaction to this rebooted series, but maybe this one will gain some of the respect that was lost with the last movie.

The title reinforces Lin’s previous statement that the upcoming flick won’t be taking much inspiration from the original Star Trek television series. Lin says, “It’s all new and fresh. The Klingons, Romulans, and other species are great, but it’s time to go further. It has been fun to focus on creating whole new worlds and species.”

Paramount pictures has Star Trek Beyond releasing on July 8, 2016, which is 2 months before the 50th anniversary of the franchise on September 8th. It will be interesting to see what happens this time around.
