Flying Platform? Oh, Sweet Child O' Mine!! Why Didn't You Guys Tell Me About This Thing?

I've wanted something like this since seeing it first on Jonny Quest, way back in the dark ages, when I was a kid. (If you are familiar with the image below, then you're OLD!!!)

Here's something that's mighty close. Burns a lot of fuel though. Watch the video: [www.dailymail.co.uk]

Jonny Quest was the coolest cartoon ever.

We all wished our parents had named us something like "Race Bannon".

Dick Tracy had solo pilot versions. I thought those were way cool. I wanted the two-way wrist radio but never though there'd be such a thing.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men
except by believing all possible evil
of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* Sigs. It's Glocks I hate.

Ok, now my mind is officially blown! Here's another product of Zapata, the Flyboard. I can't wrap my brain around this. It almost looks fake, but dang it, it's real.

Excellent video with an audience on the beach cheering.

I will swear that a jet powered hoverboard was posted a little over a year ago, but this was all I could find.

1) kids are easily impressed and convinced (Santa's on his way)
2) I've never seen any practical reason given for these flying thingies. Exactly what are they supposed to do?
