What is the Splash Infuser?

The Splash Infuser is a patented healthy beverage device that allows you to rapidly customize the flavor of your water. The Splash has a 2-part design, a bottom infusion container and a top muddler lid. Simply drop your ingredients in, twist the muddler lid to blend and release the flavors, and drop the Splash into your favorite drinking container. The Splash was designed to motivate users to skip out on sugary, high-calorie drinks and start creating their own healthy concoctions using natural ingredients like fruit and herbs. With the Splash Infuser, the possibilities to create healthy, tasty beverages are endless!

As the public knowledge continues to grow on the dangers of artificial ingredients, so does the community support of healthier alternatives to sugary beverages. This led to a trend of DIYers crafting their own tasty concoctions at home by filling mason jars and tumblers with water and fresh ingredients. However, the full infusion process typically takes around 24 hours with these methods.

The Splash Infuser is unique in the fact that the 2-part device allows you to mash and mix-up flavors instantly!

Our team of product designers have been developing and refining the Splash Infuser since the beginning of the year, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. What used to take hours or even days to craft a naturally flavored beverage now takes seconds! Leave the sugary, high-calorie drinks on the grocery store shelves…it’s time to make your own healthy alternatives!

Over the course of the year, we created 3D prints of dozens of prototype varieties. We tested each and every miniscule detail until we perfected the infusion process.

Our team at Cardboard Helicopter provides businesses and individuals with advanced, user-focused product design solutions that are both functional and inspiring, aligned to create meaningful, fresh, and innovative product experiences. We’ve had a lot of fun developing products for consumers over the years, and this is our first attempt at taking one of our concepts from idea to store shelves. We’d like to thank everyone in advance for visiting our page, sharing our story, and supporting our campaign!

Risks and challenges

We’ve spent almost a year developing and improving the Splash Infuser, so we know the quality and functionality won’t be an issue for our backers. We’ve identified our manufacturer in Erie, PA and visited their facility to ease any of our concerns. They specialize in plastic materials and have been manufacturing for over 60 years, so we believe they are a perfect fit to handle the Splash production runs. With that being said, there is always the possibility of unforeseen delays. However, we are confident that we will be able to ship the Splash Infuser out to you as quickly as promised.

We've already sourced all of our reward items, and have been in contact with the suppliers, so we don't foresee any fulfillment challenges. All we need now is your support!

FAQ

  • Diameter: 1.71in. (43.48mm.)
    Height: 3.69in. (92.21mm.)

    Last updated:
  • The Splash Infuser is not dishwasher safe. However, it’s very easy to clean! A little soap and a quick rinse will sufficiently clean all parts of the Splash Infuser.

    Last updated:
  • Not at all! The Splash is designed to keep all of the ingredients and juices inside, until you drop it into your beverage.

    Last updated:
  • Because the Splash is made from food grade plastic, the material will never change the taste of your beverage. The device will be made in the USA, and the material will not become a source of toxic contamination through usage.

    Last updated:
  • We tested and 3D printed the Splash prototype many dozens of times to make sure we had the holes big enough to allow the ingredients to mix, but small enough not to allow seeds, pulp, and other residuals into the liquid. While it's certainly possibly that small amount of fruit might be mixed in with the beverage, it's certainly way less than any of the currently infusers we tested.

    Last updated:
  • We are using USPS for all of our shipments, and since we're not a large company, unfortunately we don't receive any discounts yet. The overseas rates are the flat rate costs for us, and we don't profit off of it at all. We certainly understand that the rate is high, and we are offering the International Swan Dive tier accommodate those overseas that are interested in the Splash Infuser. So if you live outside of the US, check out the International Swan Dive tier to see the lowered shipping rates.
