Kudos to San Francisco-based Anton Willis for creating ORU, the Origami Kayak. Constructed from corrugated plastic with structural reinforcements, the kayak transforms from the size of an artist's portfolio case to a water-tight flotation vessel in 5 minutes. Unfolded, it measures 12 feet and weighs 25 pounds. We love the clean, origami-inspired graphics that put this kayak in a class of its own.
ORU, The Origami Kayak is expected to retail for $500. Sign up on the wait list for availability notification.
