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.

The name says it all; the Tower Pool Island is a platform that can be used in your own pool as your mini private island. It is inflatable and super stable at 10' x 5' in an oval shape. 

The product will retail at $799 but we are offering it for $499 on Kickstarter. Ships to all states in the US except Hawaii and Alaska.

If you pledge on the first day, you also get an electric pump, which retails for $139.

As a leading manufacturer of inflatable paddle boards, we thought: why not bring the fun into our own backyards? And the idea for the Tower Pool Island was born.

After a lot of research, we found this to be the perfect size for the average pool, also providing enough stability for sitting, standing and even exercising.

The Pool Island is spacious and stable enough to support four adults at once.

Besides the hand pump, the Tower Pool Island comes with two anchors and ropes included. That way you can attach it to the d-rings on the bottom and keep it steady.

When deflated, the Pool Island is easy to transport, and when inflated, there are two handles to facilitate carrying it. 

Made with military grade PVC material, they are super durable and you never need to deflate it. You can leave it in the water or bring the party outside and turn it into a big table. Store it inflated in the water or out.

The Company:

Tower is a team of six beach lifestyle enthusiasts. It has been manufacturing inflatable stand up paddle boards for years now. The inflatable SUPs are made from military grade materials like the ones you'll find on the highly regarded Zodiac boats and extreme river rafts.

Risks and challenges

This is Tower's 2nd Kickstarter project. Being the industry leader in inflatable paddle boards we've got plenty of experience in how to manufacture these kinds of products and fulfill lots of orders while under time pressure. That's not to say there won't be problems along the way - that said, we strive to deal with them in a way that leaves all of our customers happy with their purchase and proud to support our brand.

No matter what, we always work diligently to exceed the expectations of every backer!
