A flat-pack boat seems too fantastical an idea to be plausible, yet German designers Arno Mathies and Max Frommeld may be close to making their prototype Folding Boat a commercial reality. Made from a single sheet of plastic, the two-person Folding Boat has been designed to be assembled in a few minutes, and ideally suited for small, mostly urban, bodies of water, such as canals and ponds. More intriguing is the notion of Folding Boat as a viable option for water-related disaster relief.
