The Origami Kayak

The Origami Kayak

(From Daily Mail) It’s a hobby enjoyed the world over – what could be better than spending a few hours kayaking across a shimmering mountain lake admiring the stunning scenery while keeping fit?

Unfortunately, transporting all that bulky equipment around can prove a real headache and then you’ve got to find somewhere to store it.

But now, an enterprising kayak enthusiast from California has come up with an ingenious solution – a 12-foot long kayak that can fold away into a small plastic case.

Anton Willis, an architect by trade, has designed the origami boat after being forced to pay for storage when he couldn’t fit a conventional kayak into his apartment.

The Oru kayak folds into a compact case measuring 32in by 29in and weighing 25lb which can be stored anywhere – even in the luggage hold when flying.

When unfolded, Mr Willis, 36, says you can assemble it and be out on the water in five minutes.

The Oru Kayak will be available for pre-order Nov 14th from Kickstarter, for £500.
