Jet Surf Motorized Surfboard

Designed by engineer Martin Sula, JetSurf is essentially a motorized surfboard good for 34mph on the open water. This is made possible by a specially designed two-stroke 90 cubic centimeter MSR 50.2 HXT engine producing a ample 12-horsepower to propel a featherweight carbon fiber hull that tips the scale at just 30-pounds. All of this means it's easier to handle on the water, and a breeze when transporting the board. Click here for the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Floating Gym Paris

River cruises are nothing new, but a floating gym powered by human energy is an entirely different story. Designed to flow down the Seine River, this 20-meter-long Paris Navigating Gym is powered by Technogym's revolutionary ARTIS exercise machines, which harvest power generated by humans. "The Paris Navigating Gym investigates the potential of harnessing human power. It's fascinating to see how the energy generated by a workout at the gym can actually help to propel a boat. It provides one with a tangible experience of what lies behind the often abstract notion of 'electric power'," said Carlo Ratti, founder of Carlo Ratti Associati.

H1 Unlimited Hydroplane


For those who don't follow this sport, H1 Unlimited is basically an American Unlimited Hydroplane racing league that is sanctioned by the American Power Boat Association (APBA), and a season typically runs from July through September, consisting of five races. Unlike other watercraft, a hydroplane only uses the water they're on for propulsion and steering (not for flotation) - when going at full speed they are primarily held aloft by a principle of fluid dynamics known as "planing", with only a tiny fraction of their hull actually touching the water. Many are powered by the Lycoming T55 L7C turbine engine, originally used in Army Chinook helicopters. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Flyboard Air Hoverboard

French jet ski champion Franky Zapata's Flyboard Air, which has been in development for over 4-years, is unlike any other hoveboards you've seen on the market, as it can soar up to 10,000-feet and hit a top speed of 95mph. It's controlled via joystick hard-wired to the base, and powered by miniature jet turbines. Despite being a prototype, it carried Zapata well over a 1-mile up the coast of France, setting a Guinness World Record in the process. The Flyboard Air recently made an appearance in Barcelona, Spain during the Challengers 16 event. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Wingboard


You may have seen the renders, but Wyp Aviation's "Wingboard" is closer than ever to becoming a reality. Simply put, this board will enable riders to surf through the air at more than 100mph being towed by a plane, carving through clouds. "Testing was set up so that the rider and WingBoard would experience the same forces as if they were being towed by an aircraft. The tow line, instead of being attached to an aircraft, was attached approximately 45 feet inside the wind tunnel contraction. Flight testing revealed that the system was extremely stable and easy to fly. Full flight capabilities were achieved within 15 minutes of starting testing and very closely matched predictions," said the company.
