Check this out!! This is one of the coolest inventions I have seen in a long time!!

Flying rocketman style over the water!!

These guys have a rocketpack style board you stand on, the jetski supplies water to your propulsion tubes, and you are able to FLY!!! Pretty cool video here.


We don't think Franky Zapata knows what's about to hit him. The French jet ski champion has just put together an absolutely insane leisure product, released a short video about it - and then took off on honeymoon, where presumably he's having about the least romantic getaway of his life as his phone and email inbox go absolutely bananas.
And here it is: the Zapata Flyboard. This ingenious and deceptively simple device bolts on to the powerful motor of a jet ski, then routes the resulting water jet through a long hose that connects to a pair of jet boots and hand-held stabilizers. The arrangement lets you fly, Iron Man style, up to 9 meters in the air - or leap headfirst through the waves like a human dolphin. The best part? You can buy it for under 5000 Euro (US$6700). That is, once Franky digs his way out from under the avalanche of orders he's going to come home to.

I just had this sent to me via email and thought the ATS world might like a sneak peek at new technology, instead of the more recent political news! Something cool for a slight change up.......



What do you think about this ATS??

You might be able to use the $6,400 better......Unless that picture (your avatar) is not you......


New teeth shouldn't quite cost that much......


Joking aside, thanks for the input!! I really want one also, this thing is sweet!!!

Saw this a long time ago, some photos of the rich-ass Instagram kids, they were playing with one of these.

Also there was a commercial a year or so ago using one. Fun toy I guess.

you can buy the kit cheaper, but you need a jet-ski to cannibalize first.
