Oru Kayak

Exhibit

SAN FRANCISCO, CA The 2014 ISPO Product of the Year, the Oru Kayak, uses a brilliantly innovative, origami-inspired design to transform from a compact suitcase into an elegant, high-performance 12 foot boat. Now in the second year of production, the Oru Kayak is changing the way people explore the outdoors and experience nature. Originally conceived as a kayak for urban apartment dwellers, the Oru Kayak can be stored and transported anywhere, and the applications for it are endless. Paddlers can keep an Oru Kayak in the trunk of the car for spur of the moment expeditions or hike it through the backcountry to remote waters. And, it can be or checked on airplanes as luggage, carried on the back of a bicycle, or transported by train or bus. The Oru Kayak has won widespread praise not just for its clever design and unique capacity to fold up, but also for its on-the-water performance.


Taktia

Exhibit

Taktia will be demonstrating our first-of-its-kind handheld CNC machine. Attendees will be able to try out our working prototype, which is the size of a handheld router and can be used to precisely cut shapes of any size out of wood, plastic, or sheet metal, directly from a digital design. How does it work? The user loads a 2D shape that they want to cut, and then positions the tool manually in the approximate area of the tool path. The tool then uses a camera to track where it is, and can adjust its own position to move the cutting device to be exactly on the plan. To cut a shape, the user just approximately follows the desired path by following graphics on an onboard screen, and the tool constantly self-adjusts to follow the plan perfectly. You can see a YouTube video of the tool here: http://youtu.be/-UmL7xZZSUk
