The Oro can reportedly be assembled in about five minutes
The Oro folds down into a portfolio-sized case
The Oru measures 12 feet (3.7 meters) long by 25 inches (0.6 meters) wide, weighs 25 pounds (11 kg) and has a carrying capacity of 260 pounds (118 kg)
The Oru folding kayak should soon be heading into commercial production
According to its makers, the Oru can stand up to at least 20,000 fold cycles without leaking
Just a couple of months ago, we first heard about the Oru – a prototype touring kayak made from corrugated plastic, that can be folded up and carried like an art portfolio. Designer Anton Willis and his team have since launched a crowd-funding campaign that has already far exceeded its goal ... which means that the Oru should soon be available to buy.
