Mattracks Powerboard

While it may still be summer for many, it's never too early to pick up a few winter gadgets, especially the Mattracks Powerboard. This gas-powered vehicle combines the thrill of riding a jet ski with the freedom of a snowboard, enabling you to surf effortlessly over the fresh powder or on packed snow. Its patented rubber track uses 1 3/4" snow lugs and flexes as you lean in the direction you wish to go for graceful turns or aggressive slalom-like carvings. Power comes from a 6.5-horsepower four-cycle gasoline engine that starts with a pull, and has a maximum speed of 18 mph, operating up to two hours on only 3/4-gallon of gasoline.

Orbit Wheel Skates


Inventist's Orbit Wheel is basically what happens when you take a skateboard, remove the board as well as the wheels, and replace them with orb-like devices for your feet. Riders simply place their feet on the two platforms and lean side-to-side to rotate the rubber wheels around the feet, propelling them forward in a serpentine motion similar to a longboard. Since the wheels aren't connected, riders can easily perform 720° spins and turn on a dime. To stop, just place your toes on the ground. You can also traverse short grass and dirt surfaces on the 10" wheels. The included extendable rod can also be connected to both wheels to provide stability for beginners. Get one here now.

Jetovator Jet Pack

When jet pack meets motorcycle, you get the hydro-powered Jetovator. This gadget can shoot riders 25-feet into the air at speeds of up to 25mph. It can be maneuvered via three streams of water, which means hitting sand probably won't work. The rider steers the Jetovator with two individually controlled water nozzles, granting them the ability to perform everything from barrel rolls to backflips. You can even dive 10-feet underwater, all with only 20 minutes of instruction. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
