πŸ‘‹ Hey everyone, and thanks for the upvotes! I'm super excited today to launch my unicorn πŸ¦„πŸ’«, a new line of emoji-inspired pool floats, with Product Hunt! πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ I created these giant Emoji Pool Floats because swan and donut floats are so 2015, and is it really summer if there's no new pool float to Instagram yourself on?πŸ€” I think not.

@schmiedehaus so surely the unicorn float is next πŸ™ƒ EDIT: WHY do I want the poop one the most?! WHY?!
@schmiedehaus silly but fun product. Good work.
@schmiedehaus I own a pool supplies e-commerce business in Australia. Looking for resellers? Selling to the southern hemisphere would make your business less seasonal :)
@boogsau Cool! Want to shoot me an email at nate@thrice.com?
@bentossell πŸ’ Because it's a miracle of 21st century creativity and engineering⁉️
Our office has all agreed that this was something missing from our lives.
@brianbest You have an office of geniuses. I'd invest
These will go well with Swan floaty, @staringispolite and @jtzou.
Just wondering if you thought about copyright with these products? I was researching a similar idea, but ended up discarding it because Apple actually own these emojis. In theory you could get sued. Or did you get permission?
@vriparbelli Does anyone have any actual sources of this happening? I've seen similar comments around other emoji based products but have never actually seen or heard of Apple taking action.
@mattyxb Nope, haven't found any lawsuits. Just curious if the maker talked to Apple beforehand. Would suck to get struck by lightning...
@vriparbelli discussion and links https://www.reddit.com/r/Entrepr... also see https://github.com/emojidex/emoj... but don't directly copy the Apple ones because yes they are copyright. The IDEA of any given emoji is open but exact images are copyright unless open source as mentioned in the links earlier.
@vriparbelli I also thought of a similar idea and did not move forward because of copyright. @andydentperth answers seems to point to discussions that prove that it is in fact illegal and you could have trouble when you scale.
I'm honestly more interested in the fact that I can apparently buy this through PH. Is this the first thing to be able to do so? Is part of the future of PH e-commerce? Can a 'system of record' act in that dual capacity?
@shloky we launched the Product Hunt Shop about a month ago. More details in this blog post.
@rrhoover How delightful. Somehow missed all of that. I feel like a regular at a bar who missed a birthday or something.
