If this is a real thing, then this hoverboard thing is beyond awesome...


A Frenchman whose hoverboard invention is being considered by the US Army for usage by combat soldiers was spotted flying his super-fast device over a lake in Arizona. Franky Zapata, a former professional jet ski driver, was seen flying his Flyboard Air hoverboard over Lake Havasu earlier this month. In footage of the flight, Zapata is seen hovering dozens of feet above the Lake Havasu beach as onlookers watched the amazing flight.

It’s unclear how Zapata takes off on his hoverboard, as the video starts after his is in the air. There are also no specific details on how Zapata is controlling the Flyboard or what exactly is powering it.

The future is here. It probably is using a vacuum cleaner motor for propulsion.

It's very real... dudes been flying it for well over a year. Understandably, most of the flights are over water, but more and more are venturing over the hard, unforgiving, deadly earth. He's sold a bunch, but I have yet to hear of anyone biting it hard - which is hard to believe.
