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.

Altoid tin alterations are pretty popular among the hacking community, but this one takes it down in size. Using the Altoids Slim tins, Instructables user Joshua Zimmerman put together these bite-sized LED flashlights for under $5. With just a tiny bit of drilling and soldering, you could easily assemble a handful of these in an hour or two.

Youtuber Spiritplumber devised a cheap and relatively-simple way to extend your cell phone's battery life. Recording video on smart phones is notorious for draining your juice and he claims this workaround can last a few hours with just a couple of bucks. Or you can go the less ugly but more expensive route and just pick up one of these guys.

Scott DeSimon, writer at http://www.bonappetit.com/ stumbled across a quick and fun way to make a large quantity of corn on the cob. Get a large cooler, throw in the corn and add a couple quarts of boiling water... that's it. 30 minutes later the corn was cooked perfectly and ready to eat.

I can't be the only one that has never hear of this. Have any of you tried this? Any other easy kitchen hacks you think a lot of people don't know about?
