What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

 GET READY TO DIVE  

• Turn the valve to 120psi and just breath, an on demand flow of air is then released form the regulator allowing you to dive hands free 15-20 minutes  

• A special collapsible high pressure hand pump very simply to use (just like a bicycle pump) can fill the entire tank anywhere you are a Carrying case for pump is included!  

•Cross-body bag ensures tight universal comfortable wear just clip on and dive.  

• I designed this to be simple and ready to go! just take it along with you and dive.

 Included in your Dive Portable Lungs Kit: Dive Portable Lungs tank, cross-body bag, 4 stage regulator, 3-Stage 3000psi hand pump with carrying case & a safety and instruction manual. Read FULLY to limit and avoid risks of diving with compressed air.

Safety Concerns!

Read the included safety instruction manual before diving.

 Maintain good mental and physical fitness for diving. Avoid being under the influence of alcohol or dangerous drugs when diving. 

 Avoid overexertion while in and underwater. Limit your maximum dive depth to 9 meters/30 feet.

 Breathe properly while diving - never hold in the air you breathe. Diving compressed air can be very dangerous and always a good idea to be certified for your own safety.

Never ascend to the surface without releasing air from your lungs to avoid Over Lung Expansion 

Pulmonary Barotrauma: During rapid ascent the air in the lungs expand, causing lung over expansion and rupture releasing bubbles into the bloodstream.

If you are not a certified diver: Practice in a pool until you get comfortable with breathing underwater "it is a mental training" to avoid underwater panick

Never Dive Alone: safety procedures that are intended to improve divers' chances of avoiding or surviving accidents in or under water by diving in a group of two

Water Pressure Compresses Air: Air in a diver's body air spaces and dive gear will compress as pressure increases (and expand as pressure decreases). PRESSURE AFFECTS MANY ASPECTS OF DIVING 

 Equalization As a diver descends, the pressure increase causes the air in their body's air spaces to compress. The air spaces in their ears, mask, and lungs become like vacuums as the compressing air creates a negative pressure. Delicate membranes, like the ear drum, can get sucked into theses air spaces, causing pain and injury. This is one of the reasons that a diver must equalize their ears for scuba diving. On ascent, the reverse happens. 

Decreasing pressure causes the air in a diver's air spaces to expand. The air spaces in their ears and lungs experience a positive pressure as they become overfull of air, leading to a pulmonary barotrauma or a reverse block. In a worst case scenario this could burst a diver's lungs or eardrums. To avoid a pressure-related injury (such as an ear barotrauma) a diver must equalize the pressure in their body's air spaces with the pressure around them. To equalize their air spaces on descent a diver adds air to their body airspaces to counteract the "vacuum" effect by breathing normally, this adds air to their lungs every time they inhale adding air to their mask by breathing out their nose adding air to their ears and sinuses by using one of several ear equalization techniques To equalize their air spaces on ascent a diver releases air from their body air spaces so that they do not become overfull by breathing normally, this releases extra air from their lungs every time they exhale ascending slowly and allowing the extra air in their ears, sinuses and mask to bubble out on its own Manuel will be included how to use properly
