when you hit a river when hiking through the great wilderness, don’t you wish you have a boat with you? lugging a kayak around with you a hike isn’t a practical solution but if Tsor Design has its way, we might just be carrying a canoe on our back next time we hit the great outdoor. meet Adhoc – a foldable full-size canoe that can be folded down to the size of a standard backpack and weighs just 4.1-kilograms. conceived by Israeli designer Ori Levin from Tsor Design, the Adhoc may seems like nothing much but when you hit a river deep in the wilderness, it could be your dream boat. the boat is concocted from various high-tech materials such as carbon fiber for the frame and the hull is of a material called aramid, a heat-resistant synthetic fabric used in racing sails, and can be deployed in around five minutes. we say: make it! i am sure many of us are drooling over it. i for one, will keep a couple handy for 2012. another look at the Adhoc and a short assembly pictorial after the break.
