Proposed 55-foot Paper Boat Can Hit the Sea

The paper boat concept seeks to turn a treasured childhood activity into a working seagoing vehicle, featuring the same triangular design of the homemade vessel. From a distance, the perfectly symmetrical bow and stern makes it impossible to tell which way's forward, while the boat house dominates the center like black faceless pyramid

Only a closer look reveals tinted windows on all four sides, and two panels that fold down to provide additional deck space and easier access to the water. Clearly this life-sized paper boat can't support multi-day expeditions with its 55-foot length, but it should be perfect for a casual swim.
