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.

Apart from the gaping hole in the roof, the hurricane greatly improved their sleeping arrangement.

Hear that? That's the sound of people around the world scooping burnt cheese out of their toaster after attempting this.
