These awesome inflatables are taking the internet by storm! I have seen them everywhere and wanted one. The yellow one fromQmagic was my choice of color and when inflated, reminds me of a banana. This is a very cool concept but design may need a little tweaking.
The idea is to have an instant lounger, or couch which, when deflated can fit in a small sack and is light enough to carry anywhere. No pumps or compressors needed to inflate as you use people power and wind power, which is where the issues arise.
There are two chambers, each having a very wide mouth through which the air enters.
In order to fully inflate the chambers, you will need a strong breeze. If the air is still as it was the day I tried this out, then you have to create it by running or spinning really fast. The video that I took was our first attempt at filling this thing up with air. Now that I can see the dynamic of the thing, I think a fan, vacuum cleaner or leaf blower would have made it easier. That being said, the beauty of this is that you don't need any of the modern conveniences to blow it up. If you are at a beach, you wouldn't have a leaf blower, would you? So it is fully intended to be wind powered.
Although it is designed to be light, the parachute type material is very strong. People use these as extra seating in a family room or outdoors, a float in a pool or a lounge by the pool or on the beach. It is very versatile and comfortable.. I look forward to new versions of this coming on the market. In the meantime, we shall practice our technique which I am sure we will be experts in no time.
Disclosure: I received the inflatable lounger from Qmagic for little or no cost in exchange for testing, evaluation and review.
