How to Materially Innovate

Swimming bands made from inner tubes


  • 2 bicycle inner tubes
  • 2 swimming paddles


  1. Cut one inner tube so you get a long line of tube
  2. Tie one end of the tube to a firm fixed place (heavy table, door knob or other fixture)
  3. Tie the other end to a swimming paddle
  4. Repeat for the other tube
  5. Put the paddles on your hands and... you've got yourself a waterless pool to practice your swimming!
