Daily Dose: Bic Sport fold-in-half Yakka kayak

Unbeknownst to me, Bic Corporation, the ubiquitous France-based maker of lighters and ballpoint pens, makes kayaks.

And, they fold in half!

The company’s Yakka kayaks have rigid plastic hulls and inflatable sidewalls.

For storing and transporting the Yakka kayaks, Bic Sport added hinges to the middle of the hull, letting you fold the boat in half and tuck it away.
