    http://www.gizmag.com/mokai-three-piece-nesting-jet-drive-kayak/31417/pictures#3 Really more of a stubby "freighter" canoe IMO, or maybe the Grumman "Sportboat", but nice it fits in back of an SUV, or maybe inside an closet with its 6.5ft max hull size.

    http://www.gizmag.com/3d-printed-kayak/31343/ OK, they did it, but I can't see any improvement with all those bolts and structural webbing for that application. A solution looking for a problem.

    Seen this before, but now it is for sale fairly cheap and works with just a jetski.

    That's probably one expensive kayak....

    I don't think improving the product is the point: shifting the production to the end user is.
