Ever wanted a clear canoe or kayak so you can see what's going down in the water below you? Personally I've always been too scared, especially if it has anything to do with sharks. Still, when I was a kid I did throw fish-food on the floor of a glass-bottom boat, so there's that.
Lighter than a wood or aluminum canoe, tough as bullet-proof glass and entirely transparent on the bottom, these designs provide a completely new way to experience water life around you.
It gets better: the kayak equivalent to the transparent canoe is a carbon kevlar frame design that has a military-grade transparent urethane skin - and it folds up small enough to carry with you in a backpack. Setting it up to be water-worthy takes about a half an hour but the lightweight portability means you can bring it virtually anywhere.
Hey, if you've ever wanted to flash your privates at a school (OF FISH, PERVERT!!!), now's your chance. The canoe goes for $1,650 and the folding kayak for a staggering $4,300. Which -- have you ever seen two mermaids make love before? Me neither, Animal Planet.
Hit the jump for several more shots, including the kayak, and a link to the product site.
Thanks to Miss Bowser, who allegedly knows the location of Atlantis but won't share for fear of big oil buying and burying the patents to free energy technology. Bastards.
