if real, that's multiple shades of awesome. if not, it's probably just a matter of time until that is a thing.

Likely a fake, but cool anyway, I guess motorcycles just are not dangerous enough!

Wow
Naysayers pop out fast.
It is only 'safe' over water. I don't believe it has a gyro in it.


Impressed that he stuck the landing. The Canadian who held the previous record just ran out of gas and landed in the water.

This is the same guy:

I had one of those years ago. Made it myself from Deibert's Orchard apple crates and parts from an old Magnavox short wave radio. No, it didn't fly, but it was at least as cool. I bet that one doesn't have a dial that glows green. So take that, Mr. Cool Flying Around Guy.

Calling a jetpack for the feet a hoverboard is ridiculous.







No, it is real.




Well I wouldn't have believed it but that Guiness chick is pretty hot so it must be true.

If it is real, it must have a gyro for balance, I am also thinking the range is limited.
Still very cool!
