Put a French ski jet ski champion together with some thoughts of a jet pack and other crazy ideas and you get this – the Flyboard. It will allow the user to jump up to nine metres into the air and hover before tumbling back down to earth.

Luckily for the user, it’s for water use, so the tumble doesn’t hurt so much if you stuff it up. But this invention truly is the thing most men dream about at some stage of their lives. With a 100HP engine strapped to it, the Flyboard is used in water and can propel the rider through the water and out of it for a birds eye view of their surroundings.

You ride the Flyboard almost like a hoverboard in Back to the Future but in water. It always has to have a hose connected to it as its main propulsion is water. But aside from that, and the $6,397 price tag, it’s all good!
