Kickstarting an inflatable "hammock"

[Read the post]


City of San Francisco tells man he can't live in wooden box in friend's living room
Sit comfortably in the great outdoors with the Loungr Inflatable Chair, now 22% off
Relax on something that looks sorta like a Rover from 'the Prisoner' would if you could relax on it

There seems to be some question about the fact that the product seems to exist already: www.fatboy.com/us/lamzac-hangout


#3

Cheaper, in more colours and available internationally without having to wait.


#4

Oh America…


#5

Or the Indegogo one:

Not sure if inflatable vulva lounges are really gonna be thing or not, even if there are three different versions already.


#6

It looks like the tech may have applications for homeless people. More evidence markets don’t support socialized use very well (i.e. tech to satisfy unmet needs instead of private profit)?

People on beaches “need” stuff too, I guess. :slight_smile:

Exciting project though. Startups are exciting.


#7

Oh, that’s where I saw this before. BackerKit put the “Kaisr” in their “Staff Favorite” list just a few weeks ago.

Looks comfortable, but one small puncture could leave you feeling flat. (no, I couldn’t resist)


#8

BUT, BUT, Kickstarter means I’m getting a deal! I’m getting in early! On a deal!

#10

Is it compatible with this?


#11

But do any of them work as a boat?

I require watercraft capability in all my vulva-shaped furniture.


#12

You’re in luck! The KAISR Original can be used as a flotation device for all (well, many) of your vulva shaped lounge watersport needs.


#13

Already available from China with free shipping for $50.


#14

They are available on Alibaba.com, but not yet on aliexpress.

So based on the article, I ordered a couple. Guess what came popped up in my inbox today:

This is a message from Kickstarter’s Integrity team. We’re writing to notify you that the Koze - Lightweight, Inflatable, and Amazing Comfort Anywhere, project has been suspended, and your $XXXX USD pledge has been canceled. A review of the project uncovered evidence that it broke Kickstarter’s rules. We may suspend projects when they demonstrate one or more of the following:
Offering purchased items and claiming to have made them yourself
Presenting someone else’s work as your own
Misrepresenting or failing to disclose relevant facts about the project or its creator
Accordingly, all funding has been stopped and backers will not be charged for their pledges. No further action is required on your part.
We take the integrity of the Kickstarter system very seriously. We only suspend projects when we find strong evidence that they are misrepresenting themselves or otherwise violating the letter or spirit of Kickstarter’s rules. As a policy, we do not offer comment on project suspensions beyond what is stated in this message.

I put it to you, that that photo was taken with a high-speed camera in the few milliseconds before that contraption capsized and sent yer man there to the bottom of the pool.
