The Transparent Bulletproof Kayak

Now, we’re not entirely sure why you’d want to go into battle against an arsenal of military-grade machine guns whilst paddling a kayak, but should you ever find yourself in that very pickle, give Seattle-based designers Clear Blue Hawaii a call...

Forged from bulletproof glass originally intended for fighter jets, the company's latest kayak has also given a robust boost in the shape of a carbon Kevlar frame, offering minimal weight alongside those sleek seafaring curves.

As for more genuine’ concerns, like how you can view your underwater surroundings without the threat of capsizing, it’s completely transparent, giving you a completely novel view of your underwater surroundings.

And if all that weren’t enough, the model - which is foldable for ease of transport - can be snapped up as a Napali single-seater or Molokini double-seater by request.

Ejector seats, we imagine, are optional.
