I'd be dead by New Year's but what a way to go. :D

    Join the French military.  They will give you one.

    You suppose it's new standard issue for the modern French army? A part of their tactical retreat package?

    This means evil super villains are right around the corner.

    Make it so you can squat down on it. Pigeons would take a back seat to poopin' on people and cars if that happened! :D:D:D

    It'd be great for political rallies. Fly by moonings.

    We'll see how long it takes to get these things banned also.

    Here is a longer video shot when he was demonstrating it in Naples, FL.  It is powered by 6 small turbine engines with a combined HP rating of somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 HP.  Top speed is around 100 mph.  The backpack contains the fuel bladder and the throttle is controlled by a wireless controller in his hand.

    It is pretty cool.

    I wonder what a Wipeout looks like on one of those things?
    I'm sure it's worse than a skateboard.

    It might be a safe bet that he'll be enjoying his invention till the day he dies.

    In the meantime, I see movie contract!

    If you have ever seen the jet ski water jet powered version, same inventor.  He saw this as the logical next step in the design of that product.  The reason he makes flying it look easy is because of his hours of experience on the water jet version.....and also there is a pretty serious computer program helping stabilize the platform.

    I can already see his invention in a Bond movie. He'll probably have to fly it since I don't think any of the stunt guys would be able to master it like he has.

    I'm waiting for a flying motorcycle......something like what they used in a couple of Star Wars movies.

    Not for me.  I can't even stay up on a skate board...

    Yep, like I said -- I get one on Christmas and I'd be dead by New Year's. It might take that long to get aboard the dang thing.
    :D

    "The flyboard looks like a chunky skateboard and is powered by five small engines."
    Leave it to CNN to get the details wrong.  It has six turbine engines, not five.  The four mains propel it and the two outriggers are computer controlled to add stability.
