Zapata Racing just released the Flyboard, a water-powered jet pack available to the public. The Flyboard gets it propulsion from a jet ski idling nearby; its hose forces water to shoot out of the user's feet. Not as cool as a the real deal the public is waiting on, but I guess this is a happy medium for now.

RO&AD, an architectural firm whose name sounds very much like a quote from an intoxicated Chris Farley, recently designed The Trench Bridge. A pedestrian foot path designed to make us rethink the way we look at bridges, this one crosses the moat in front of Fort de Roovere in Halsteren. A neat concept, but one that would only be applicable on a small scale to bodies of water that stay at a constant depth.

From the submitter:

While I appreciate the skill displayed in the other booklamps produced, I feel they lack a certain kludge factor. I think I've achieved that here. Plus, no books were harmed in the making of this lamp!

Instructables user dhouggy wanted to ride his bike indoors but didn't want to pay hundreds of dollars for a trainer or professionally-made roller. So with a couple 2x4s and some PVC pipe he was able to craft this working homemade model for just $50.
