Latest Yacht Toy – Origami Inspired Folding Kayak

Yachting enthusiasts are always looking for the latest and greatest in toys and gadgets. And many yachts can be seen cruising around the world with kayaks strapped to the flybridge or forward on the bow. Well not anymore. One of the latest yachting toys to come on the market is a folding kayak by Oru. Inspired by origami, this kayak folds nearly flat to help free up deck space and restore the beautiful profile of your vessel. Weighing in a just 25 pounds, this kayak comes out of a flat carry case and extends to 12 feet by 12 inches when set together. The design started with a prototype and after 25 different designs Oru settled on the final construction that has tested very well. More interestingly, the company was founded on the crowd funding site Kickstarter where it met its funding goal in under 5 hours with donors from around the world. The result, a fun and smart solution for having as many toys on board as possible.

This fully recyclable boat is designed to last 20,000 fold cycles without structural failure. The Oru Kayak skin becomes its own carrying case, with space to hold a life vest, paddle, and other accessories. The founders have plans to launch a lot of cool accessories soon while they are taking pre-orders now for delivery in Spring 2013. The portable kayak sells at a discounted rate of $1,095 and sets up in as little as 10 minutes.
