The kayak is currently in the Kickstarter phase with plans to bring it to market in the Spring of 2013. The designers were hoping to raise $80,000 to build their pet project, but with 27 days (as of this writing) to go in their campaign, they've already managed to collect $170,000+. As always with Kickstarter, the various levels of donations get you a variety of perks, but in this case, a pledge of $800 actually reserves one of the first models for you.
I'm curious to see how well this paddles. I have to admit, I'm definitely interested in this boat. It really is quite an interesting design and I look forward to hearing how it performs on anything other than flat water.
Thanks to reader Will Kirby for sharing this very cool find!
