You've seen Innespace's Seabreacher crafts before, but this sailfish is their latest project. In addition to a water cannon and removable sail for achieving barrel rolls, this custom creation even has detachable mortar tubes for shooting fireworks. It's powered by a supercharged 260-horsepower engine and comes equipped two race-style seats, enabling it to reach speeds in excess of 55 mph on the surface; 25 mph under water. The vectored thrust system - jet nozzle can move in all directions - mimics the tail articulation of aquatic animals such as sharks and dolphins, and allows for radical freestyle maneuvers. Each one is built to order and takes 2-4 months to complete, with prices starting at $85,000. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

This looks like a normal kayak at first, but the jet-propelled Mokai ES-Kape is anything but a simple water cruiser. In addition to a modular design - breaks into 3 pieces - which allows easy transportation, it's powered by a removable 4-stroke Subaru engine good for speeds up to 17 miles per hour on water. "The MOKAI watercraft idea was born from the need to provide a product that allowed fishermen, hunters and explorers a craft that granted access to those hard to reach upstream or shallow area locations. It had to be lightweight, durable, easy to transport, environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient," said the company. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Honda's futuristic-looking Neowing offers the cornering feel and sporty ride of a large-sized motorcycle, while also having excellent stability during low speed maneuvers on rugged terrain. The vehicle's two wheels up front utilize a specially-designed linkage mechanism that allows riders to lean into corners like a regular motorcycle. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
Here's another look at the Volkswagen Aqua by design student Yuhan Zhang from China. The primary motor unit is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, and used to drive the main fan which then inflates the rubber skirt around the vehicle. When this happens, Aqua is raised just above the ground to provide lift, and its rear fans are powered by individual electric motors to provide forward thrust as well as directional control.

Martin Jetpack, the world's first commercially available personal jetpack, will go on sale in 2016, at a cost of around $150,000. It's been developed over the past 35 years by New Zealander Glenn Martin who unveiled the initial prototype in 2011, which successfully flew at least 1,000 meters off the ground before landing via parachute. The improved version, the P12, was on display at the Paris Air Show in June, along with a simulator allowing the public to experience the Jetpack for themselves. It's powered by a 200-horsepower V4 petrol engine that drives two ducted fans, enabling it to fly for more than 30-minutes at up to 46mph, and at altitudes up to 1000 meters.

If you're a water sports enthusiast who dreams of flying through the ocean waves, but don't like surfing, there is now an alternative...the Kymera Bodyboard. Powered by a solar-powered, lithium-ion battery pack, it has a top speed of 18mph (25mph for propane-powered model) and caught the attention of search and rescue (SAR) teams and lifeguards.

Measuring 140-feet long, Adastra is what happens when hydrodynamics meets aerodynamics, as the design ensures speed while at the same time, not sacrificing fuel consumption. The water vessel boasts a top speed north of 23 knots, and doesn't need to refuel but once every 4,000 nautical miles, thanks to its lightweight carbon fiber construction. Inside, you'll find 5-star amenities, including luxurious bathrooms, a bar, full kitchen, whirlpool, sauna, master cabin, two guest cabins and a massive deck for enjoying the panoramic views.

At first glance, this appears to be the famed hoverboard from "Back to the Future" (the pink LED model), but it's just a one-wheeled, self-balancing board of sorts by Hoverboard Technologies. Capable of hitting 16 mph, it can be fully charged in under 20-minutes, and has a range of nearly 10 miles. Riders simply have to tilt forward to advance forth, and tilt back to slow themselves back down. A companion smartphone app monitors can be used to view data such as speed, LED lights control, and the amount of charge left. There's also a nifty "Find My iPhone" like security feature that sends alerts to your handset when it's too far away, which at that time, can be remotely shutdown by the company once reported stolen.

Forget flat tires, the Energy Return Wheel by Colorado-based designer Brian Russell is completely airless, and aims to solve that problem for good. Instead of air, ERW uses rubber that's been stretched over a series of carbon nano tube reinforced composite rods designed to provide the same cushioning as traditional tires. The rods are fully adjustable, enabling the tension on the rubber to adapt to different road conditions and terrains, improving both flexing and recoil cycling for riders.

Two brothers, owners Howe and Howe Technologies, created Ripsaw, one of the fastest dual tracked vehicles you'll ever see. With a diesel engine that produces 600-horsepower, 12 inches of suspension travel, and treads that can handle any terrain, it could be the perfect doomsday vehicle. The development team can build one to your heart's desire, but it can take up to 6 months to fabricate and can cost "well into the 100s of thousands depending on desired luxury and performance packages."
