Forget the floaties, next time you hit the water grab a Foldaboat instead! Designed by Arno Mathies and Max Frommeld, this water vessel is a fully flat-packable  design made from a single sheet of plastic . Created for flat water environments, the 8-foot boat can be folded down and packed away into a 60in. x 24in. carrying bag for easy storage and portability. And while we admit this isn’t your typical party boat, the Foldaboat provides an excellent tool for emergency disaster response, where time is often of the essence and resources are limited.
