Welcome to a new feature we're trying out over the next few weeks: the Manufacturing.net Video of the Day. With an increasing amount of good content being distributed through video, we feel that it's important to give space to the best ones we've found. And we all know that sometimes, it's good to just take a break and take in some cool sights or interesting ideas.
The Flyboard, from Zapata Racing, is kind of a dream-come-true for those who fantasize about flying but aren't quite ready for flying formation with jets with a rocket strapped to your back. It appears to use a massive pump to create water jets powerful enough to propel the user a few dozen feet above the water. All in all, it looks pretty fun. Looking to buy one?
