Submitted by: wolladude 5 years ago in Tech

It"s unconventional travel and it"s no jet pack, but it looks fun.

Looks like it still needs a bit more engineering. Water jets seem to be a bit underpowered on the arms. Great idea though. Who says the hoverboard can`t be designed, just different propulsion.

Available for sale for 4900€. The facts that this is extremely cool, but is not available for use by tourists at resorts tells me there is still something wrong with it, probably that it is incredibly hard to control (so it appears) and much too dangerous. World Jetski Champion didn`t have the leg-strength to handle the thing.

"it`s no jet pack,"

Well technically, it creates a high pressure jet of water. Not all jets spew hot air.

yeah last time this was posted, it came with a website, and a purchase price, it was also more than a year ago.

Thing is, who is going to insure it? Hell some states even require you to insure RC Gas Powered Aircraft. Im sure you would have to insure this too. I am sure it can do some damage, or even loss of life if you got some drunken fool that passes out in it. Or other unforseen circumstances...
