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.

As many of you might know, this is our second Kickstarter campaign for SCUBAJET, the world's most powerful jet-engine for water sports gear. While our first campaign was running a lot of great opportunities came up and so we decided to cancel the campaign before running out. Among other things we could reduce the production costs and wanted to pass on the savings to you by reducing the final price. 

Further the dive adapter and additional battery packs, so many of you asked for, are now available and an external battery pack will be launched at the beginning of 2017.

Water sports are a great way to exercise, but in life, it’s all about choices. SCUBAJET accepts the challenge and brings some of the most popular aquatic activities to the next level. The water sports gear allows to make decisions based on individual needs or habits by combining motor power and paddling. 
Comparable to an e-bike, it turns your aquatic equipment into fast, comfortable and reliable devices.

Stand up paddling (SUP) is one of the fastest-growing water sports nowadays. Within a few seconds and requiring no tools SCUBAJET turns every stock board into a powerful e-SUP-board. On top of that, SCUBAJET can be used for other water sports, like canoeing, dingys and even for diving.

While conventional diving scooters are often big and bulky and weight between 10 and 25 kg (22 to 55 lbs.), the SCUBAJET has a streamlined appearance with only 3 kg (6.6 lbs.) including the Dive Adapter. Additionally underwater scooters are most often unwieldy, whereas the SCUBAJET allows to decide even during the dive whether to be used or not. If the SCUBAJET is not needed at the moment, it can simply be fixed to the buoyancy compensator – without any compromises. This simple solution is unique, there's nothing like it on the market.

 

 

 

 

 

 

*You can either choose a backerclub or backersnation discount to your pledge.  

 

 

 

 

One of the big advantages is the innovative adapter system that provides various possibilities to use SCUBAJET on any imaginable water sports equipment. No technical skills are needed at any point. The plug&play system and the water resistant remote control make it easy to start, stop and select different speeds while using it on the water.

Take your existing board or equipment and extend it with SCUBAJET easily. Select the appropiate adpater and you are ready to go in a few seconds. We provide adapters for SUP, kanu, dinghi boats and dive. Many of the adapters use standardized finplugs for maximum convenience. By now we support and provide adapters for more than 20 different manufactures and many of them use standardized finplugs. So it's easy for us to provide compatible adapters.

Until now we support the following manufactures. We continuously extend the list. If you can't find the right adapter, please inform us about the desired manufacturer and we'll get in touch to put it on our adapter request list.

Our electric motor allows you to go further to find your perfect spot to enjoy. You are able to stay on the water longer and tackle bigger trips with your water buddies. SCUBAJET brings you back to the shore safely and is made for active people and sports enthusiasts as well as families.

SCUBAJET offers various engine mappings for scuba diving (slow speed and long battery lifetime), power mode (short high speed sprints), SUP (paddling support or surfing without paddle) or freehand. 

We have tested and implemented a bunch of great features like the SmartPower Technology. It offers long battery time up to 240 minutes with the internal battery and up to 720 minutes with the external battery pack. The external battery pack will be available with beginning of 2017.

Due to the latest safety and security regulations for batteries, there is a limit of two spare batteries per person for the larger lithium ion batteries (up to 160 wh per battery). But as we know traveling is particulary important of many water sports fans, it was very important to us to meet your expectations and so we now provide a travel battery pack that consists of 2x160 wh batteries, that is allowed on airplanes!

 

Measuring only 58 cm (~22 inch) length and a diameter of 7,2cm (~2,8 inch) in length and weighing just 3kg (~6,6 lbs), SCUBAJET is easy to transport and fits in every backpack.

You can control the SCUBAJET easily with the included remote control. Three buttons control all the functions, for increasing/decreasing speed, as well as to spot the engine. The auto-shut off system stops the engine immediately if you fall into the water and it will also be used for initial power on SCUBAJET over magnetic switch. SCUBAJET is also safe for kids as well since we use jet-power instead of regular propeller motors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During the entire development process, SCUBAJET was used by a lot of different people to get their opinion and as much feedback as possible.

We've started to create a jet-engine for different applications two years ago. Our goal is a full scale market launch this year. To reduce the manufacturing costs to an acceptable price for the people out there, we need a initial production run of 150 pieces. 

 

Your pledge will help us to hold the Scubajet in our hands soon. We can't wait to make you happy with some of our hand picked rewards or a SCUBAJET and we couldn't thank you enough for supporting us!

If we pass EUR 100,000, the SCUBAJET experience will be on a complete new level, because every SCUBAJET than has a high tech LED light in the front with 500 Lumen.

It's not only super practical while staying on the water during your canoe-, dinghi- or SUP trip for underwater lighting, its also possible to use the lamp without the engine unit. The lamp alone is also proofed for a depth of 45m.

And that's not all! If you need more Lumen for diving as example you will be able to upgrade the lamp to 1.500 Lumen or add it as accessory in the future.

Patrizia has always been a sporting ace and a real water lover. She grew up in Italy near Lake Constance and pursued her water hobbies ever since. Three years ago, her daughter was born and she was confronted with reconciling family life and her beloved hobby. She didn't want to give up water sports but she felt insecure about taking her daughter on the SUP board. "What if there is a thunderstorm coming up?", was one of the thoughts fostering her tentativeness. In addition, she wanted to take the whole family to the water without buying a motorboat to enjoy the beautiful summer in Carinthia.

Out of these thoughts the idea of creating a flexible motor for water sports emerged. Consequently, her boyfriend Armin and his father Gert developed the SCUBAJET. Nowadays, Patrizia enjoys standing on her SUP board together with her daughter to escape the crowds at Lake Wörth's beaches.

Patrizia has a strong background in marketing in the sea freight industry. With SCUBAJET she turns her hobby into profession.

Risks and challenges

We've tested SCUBAJET throughout the last year extensively. Moreover, we produced a small batch of SCUBAJETs for promotional purposes and are very happy with our outcome.

Transforming a product towards serial production is a challenging endeavor. Some parts and details have to be optimized with our suppliers with a particular focus on the possibility to seamlessly mount the SCUBAJET quickly and easily without any additional tools during the production process.

However, because of our outstanding engagement in the industry and partnerships and an extensive testing phase we can guarantee a smooth start of the serial production.

Nevertheless, some issues like the FCC/CE certification can be time-devouring and administrative barriers such as customs have to be considered for our tight schedule.
