Oru Kayak, The Origami Folding Boat is Clever

oru kayak

We like kayaking, we love the water but we hate shlepping the kayak to the lake. This awesome kickstarter project called the Oru Kayak ($750 USD) provides the kayak you need and want into an easily foldable carrying bag, inspired by origami. The Oru Kayak is light, weighing only 25 lbs. It is ultra portable, duh! It also fold into a 33″ X 29″ X 10″ case. Each Oru Kayak is engineered out of a single sheet of double-layered plastic. The only noticeable seam is sealed with a watertight rubber gasket. Solid ribs offer strength and rigidity.The corrugated plastic skin is extremely tough and durable. Honestly, we love this project, so be sure to check it out!
