The film has broken a world record for the ‘largest stop-motion animation set’, with the largest scene stretching over 11,000 square feet”.

Folding Canoe

29 Jul

Adhoc folding canoe’ by Ori Levin
“Israeli designer ori levin from studio tsor design has created ‘adhoc’: this full-size canoe can be folded into a bag the size of a standard backpack (13 x 23 x 70 centimeters). weighing 4.1 kilograms, the materials were carefully selected to be both lightweight and resilient: the frame is made of carbon fiber while the hull is made of aramid, a heat-resistant synthetic fabric used in racing sails. A corner lock holds the telescopic poles to form each end, and a parasol-like mechanism in the center maintains the structure of the sides. the canoe can be assembled in approximately five minutes.
