We’ve all seen the hoverboards that tourists at island resorts pay to ride, with a giant hose attached to them, which in my book means they aren’t actually real hoverboards.
However, now it appears Zapata Racing has developed a hoverboard with absolutely nothing attached to the device.
Dubbed the “Flyboard Air,” the details behind the video and hoverboard are a bit murky, but Zapata claims the footage is 100% real.
The features of the Flyboard Air do seem kind of outlandish, however, with Zapata saying it can fly autonomously for 10 minutes with a ceiling of 10,000 feet, not to mention a top speed of 93 miles per hour.
I don’t know about all that, but Zapata Racing certainly knows how to get people talking, so for now, we’ll take a cautious approach before getting too excited about the Flyboard Air.
