About this project
NKD AQUA POD is a World first, a revolution in water filtration. Our team brings together experts in the fields of design, engineering, water filtration, and fashion.
The NKD AQUA POD is a design statement which brings to market a unique water filtration system.
The NKD AQUA POD transforms ordinary tap water into mountain quality spring water through a 100% natural clean and green purification process as you drink.
The structure and design of the water bottle has not evolved over the last fifty years, we knew we could make it better. We wanted to create a bottle that was a design statement, a bottle for modern living.
Our aim was to create the most beautiful, perfectly proportioned water bottle. It had to be ergonomic, aesthetically pleasing and yet practical and easy to use.
Ten prototypes later we present the NKD AQUA POD.
We have perfected the design and functionality to finally create what we initially visualized – the World’s best water, in the World’s best bottle. The NKD AQUA POD transforms ordinary tap water into mountain quality spring water through a 100% natural clean and green purification process as you drink.
The NKD AQUA POD comes in four colours
We incorporated an array of features into the design of the NKD AQUA POD to make our everyday lives easier.
- Easy change patent pending filter
- Eliminates chlorine taste and odour*
- Filters out 99% of bacteria*
- Filters out heavy metals* (* From municipal tap water)
- Eliminates the gritty carbon taste you get from other carbon filters
- Supercharges the water with natural minerals and electrolytes as found in nature
- The safest most technologically advanced plastics FDA-approved plastics - NKD AQUA sets a new quality benchmark for the industry
- The NKD AQUA POD does not retain or impart flavours - there's no metal or plastic taste
- Great flow rate makes it easy to drink without having to suck the bottle
- NKD Super Flo System - intelligently designed squeezable motion pad for when you require a supercharged flow rate
- Large 3cm opening makes it easier to refill and clean the bottle - large enough to put ice cubes through
- Leak proof system
- Fully attached cap protects mouth piece from exposure to germs and dirt
- Sleekly designed mouth piece feels comfortable on the lips
- Comfortable silicone grip for easy handling and maximum impact resistance
- 585ml capacity
How does it taste?
Help us spark the nkd revolution!
Over the last two years our team has designed, produced and tested prototypes of the NKD AQUA POD. Once we were certain we had successfully created the World's best portable water filtration and conditioning system we started our tooling process. We have now completed our production tooling (we are just in the process of completing fine tuning).
Our research & development
Inspired by nature’s finest. We observed that mountain stream water passes through a series of natural vortices wherein “microclusters” are created and enhanced by natural oxygenation. We learned that because this water was declustered it provided enhanced hydration.
Creating a better system. We then set about perfecting our FILTRON SYSTEM. A system that takes ordinary ‘dead’ tap water, purifies and supercharge it using this scientific principle.
NKD AQUA POD answers the demand for better, cleaner water that doesn’t cost the earth.
Our core team
NKD AQUA was developed after extensive research into the World’s most famous mountain mineral waters. We found that the waters in these regions are declustered, slightly alkaline and supercharged with important trace minerals and electrolytes which hydrate your body in the most efficient way.
Our research & development team began experimenting with various natural filtering methods to replicate this natural process within a bottle. We were able to create a filter capable of producing mountain quality spring water that is slightly alkaline and supercharged with the optimal level of natural minerals and electrolytes as found in nature.
Our patent pending FILTRON SYSTEM is the result of several years of research & development with leading experts from across the globe in the fields of bio energetics and water physics.
Why we chose to manufacture in the USA
We have already selected two long established and highly reputable manufacturing partners based in California, USA. One specialist company to produce the filter systems and another to produce the plastic components and follow through with complete unit assembly and packaging. We chose to manufacture in the USA as members of our team have successfully worked with both of the companies in the past. We wanted to guarantee reliable production schedules, precision manufacturing and ultimately the highest quality product. We have been working with them to mitigate the risks in volume production of the NKD AQUA POD and are well positioned to execute our delivery plan.
We estimate NKD AQUA POD will begin shipping in February 2014 and are excited to Supercharge our loyal backers from our first Kickstarter community production run!
We hope the kickstarter community can share in our vision and help us make the Worlds best water a reality for everyone. THANK YOU!
Risks and challenges
Our own team consists of highly experienced engineers and designers who will be overseeing all production on the ground in California.
We believe the risks involved with bringing the NKD AQUA POD to market are very minimal at this stage and have provided the Kickstarter community with a conservative estimate of when delivery can be expected.
We do not see fulfilment as a risk in this project. Within our team we have extensive experience with freight, logistics and international trade.
If we do encounter any unforseen circumstances we promise to keep all of our backers informed throughout the process and remain dedicated to ensure we provide you with a great experience.
