Most of us have thought about flying on our own personal hoverboard at some point in our lives. Well for some, that dream has become a reality. A man in France invented a hoverboard that he uses to take to the skies. Franky Zapata is the inventor, and he is also the inventor of the “Flyboard”. The Flyboard is a very successful product that uses a hose to suck water from a lake or ocean and then propels the rider forward using water propulsion. This is where the new hoverboard is quite a bit different.
Instead of using water propulsion, the hoverboard uses air and jet engines, 4 of them to be exact. This new innovation eliminates the need for a big hose attached to the board, and it also takes away the restriction of needing a water source. It gives the user freedom to move over land or water.
