The Foldable Boat


For all their sleek innovation, kayaks are still cumbersome vessels – difficult to drag to the water or store in a garage. The Oru Kayak hopes to change that. Watertight, puncture-resistant, and capable of carrying 260 pounds, the 12-foot-long, 25-inch-wide boat can perform in most waters yet folds into an easily packable 33-inch carrying case. It can even be checked on flights. [From $850;]
