We may not have flying cars or personal jetpacks, but we do carry mini-supercomputers in our pockets and Skype is fundamentally a less clunky version of the Jetsons' video phone. We're living in the future, and for the most part I know I at least tend to be pretty blasé about it all.
But then something like the Flyboard comes along to remind us that it's a whacky new world we're living in. I'm not going to pretend for a moment this thing is practical, safe, or affordable at $6k. But none of that matters to the part of me that was once a ten year old boy and just can't get over how damned cool it looks.
Check out the video below and let us know what you think, is the Flyboard the next Olympic sport, Darwinism in action, or some combination therein?
