    That is very cool. I actually hadn't even heard about the previous attempt til now. Do they only work over water, or was that just for safety reasons?

    Adrian, are you online?

    That's your new theme song.

    The video yellowcat posted was of the Flyboard Air, not the self-balancing scooter you're thinking of. Since you can't be bothered to click any links, here's a gif.

    I think it's for safety reasons. When he takes off and lands, he always hovers over land briefly.

    Totally Bitchin! I wondered when this would happen. I guess I haven't been paying attention. Makes sense though with the new batteries and "cheap" solid state accelerometer stability available.

    A lot lot can go wrong here. I wouldn't fly it any higher than I was willing to fall unless there was some sort of ballistic chute system for low altitude failures (between 0-500 feet) where normal chutes won't work. I can see 6 individually powered props could raise the safety bar but a system controller failure would spell doom.

    What about a graphene-titanium alloy suit over a microlattice mesh suit for protection?
