Oru Kayak: The Origami Folding Boat

Categories: Modern Decor + Objects

Sorry for two Kickstarter posts in one day…but this one is too cool to not mention! It’s a kayak…that folds like origami into a tote with straps you can carry! Are you ready? Cause the future is here. “The Oru Kayak is an incredible, high-performance boat that folds out of a compact case. Inspired by origami, this innovative kayak transform quickly, easily— and almost magically. Stash it in a trunk, check it on a plane, stow it aboard a sailboat, or hike it in to remote waters. It’s full size (12′ long), super light (25 lbs), and quick to assemble (5 min). On the water it’s fast, stable, and handles incredibly well.” More information on the Oru Kayak Kickstarter.

  2. That is one of the coolest ideas I have seen for a Kayak. Does it really stay afloat and avoid break down from all the water contact for long periods on the water?
