Oru Kayak

Oru Kayak

To solve the problem of large kayak in small apartment, Anton Willis developed Oru Kayak, a foldable kayak which can be folded into a tidy carrying case. The Oru Kayak takes 5 minutes to assemble into its full size of 12’ long by 25” wide by 13” high. It floats, it rolls, and it can withstand 20,000 folds/unfolds. Cost is $850, scheduled for release in summer of 2013. First seen globaldesignnews.com.

As amazing and innovative as this may seem, the concept of a foldable kayak has existed since 1905 thanks to a German architectural student. Foldable kayaks have shown themselves to be seaworthy, and they have been used during wartime. Read more here.
