Now that you’ve seen the Flyboard (an aquatic board invented by Frank Zapata that propels riders into the air with the help of two water nozzles), meet the Hoverboard, which looks a bit like a wakeboard except that it’s attached to a single hose that propels it forward and upward with jets of water. It can shoot riders up to 16-feet in the air and get up to speeds of around 23-miles-per-hour. Continue reading for a video, more pictures and additional information.
As previously mentioned, the gadget is basically a wakeboard fitted with a high-powered water jet to help propel. Riders can use the high-powered stream of water to perform all sorts aerial tricks, spins, and flips as they hover above the surface. Expect to shell out at least $2,675 for the most basic model.
