This Tiny Tube Inflates into a Life Preserver As Soon As It Hits the Water

This is the OneUp, a compact, self-inflating life preserver that has a portable inner tube that inflates upon contact with the water. The tube is 20 times lighter than a regular life preserver. It’s easy to carry in a beach bag, backpack, or store on your boat or even clip right onto your clothing.

This life-saving device is easy to throw to someone in need of help in the water. Its perfect size and weight allow for an accurate throw, which is crucial in the seconds leading up to a possible drowning. Your throw won’t get blown off course by strong winds or currents thanks to its OneUp’s design.



The OneUp is also completely reusable. After each inflation, just simply swap out OneUp’s CO2 cartridge. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), but the OneUp can empower swimmers and reduce this deadly risk.
