    Time to Fly

    I happened across this Flyboard video and just had to share it. What’s our world going to look like in 100 years?...if it lasts that long.

    I’ve never been that good on a skateboard...but mine was home made using a single, steel wheel roller skate.

    This is similar to what we made as kids

    This is off the charts.

    That is so smooth it looks fake! I wonder what the forward speed is on that thing? Enough to kill you quickly I'm sure. Probably why they stay over water for now. Great find!

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    Man who runs in front of motorcycle gets tired. Man who runs behind motorcycle gets exhausted.

    Here’s more information I found.

    The new Zapata Invention: Flyboard® Air
    THE FLYBOARD® AIR COSTS $250K AND IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR RECREATIONAL, OR CIVILIAN USE, AT THIS TIME.

    Zapata Racing has achieved the dream of mankind and offers you the first video of Franky Zapata flying on the innovation Flyboard® Air.

    The Independent Propulsion Unit represents 4 years of hard work for a result exceeding all records:

    – Autonomous flight up to 10,000 feet

    – Top speed of 150km/h (93,2 mph)

    – 10 min autonomy

    Although the UFO is still in prototype phase and is not issued to the general public it has exactly the same behavior as the ESH Flyboard® Pro Series.

    Those who wants to feel the thrill, or pending the governmental approval, we invite you to discover the products ZR:

    Flyboard® Pro Series , Hoverboard by ZR® and Jetpack by ZR® that allow you to fly safely over the water.

    Explore the ZR universe and its safe & fun products, approved by millions of users worldwide »

    If only we could live longer. Our kids, kids will probably think motorcycles are boring.
