“Origami boat is a light folding dinghy for sailing fun.

Almost three meters long, Origami boat carries one adult and its extreme lightweight structure makes it exciting to sail. Afterwards it folds up into a flat pack to the same size as a windsurf board…”

It’s pretty short on details, but the imagination is tall. Matteo Signorini designed the Origami Boat as part of his industrial design engineering course. What’s pretty cool is that he was able to model different designs with paper first, before building out the full-sized prototypes with sheet plastic. [via] – Link.

    Reminds me of Instaboat — “the perfect portable folding boat for outdoors enthusiasts. This foldable boat is lightweight, durable, and can be assembled in 2 minutes. This boat adapts to all recreational vehicles and is easy to carry. Very stable and safe to use, it is unsinkable, even when filled with water.”
