Though, the mere mention of 'Origami' makes us think of Microsoft first, before anything else. But, the fact is, Microsoft's Origami project has inspired a new breed of designers, to come up with compact and lightweight stuff that can be carried anywhere and everywhere, without any hitch. Like for example, the Origami DVD Player concept from an Israeli designer, Mag-Ink, we told you about, last May. But, if you thought, the Origami concept can be followed just for electronic stuff, then, you are mistaken! A designer, Matteo Signorini has designed a boat (yes, ..a boat) on Origami's sketch lines.
The Origami Boat is a light folding dinghy, made out of flat sheets of plastic for sailing fun. The three meters long boat is meant for a single person's use and is extremely lightweight. Once, the sailing is over, it folds up into a flat pack to the same size as a windsurf board. So, it can be carried everywhere, in a car, on flights or even in your luggage. The corrugated plastic makes it extremely safe and rigid for your sail.
