The Flyboard, which looks like a small snowboard attached to a hose, can propel you 45 feet in the air using water pumped from a personal watercraft like a Jet Ski to the base of the board. Promotional videos racking up millions of YouTube views show riders shooting out of the ocean into the sky, then diving back in the water like dolphins. The riders perform backflips and twirl like tops on tall columns of water. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
