A couple weeks ago a video Franky Zapata released a video of him flying the Flyboard Air hoverboard he invented but I didn't post it because it looked suspicious and if there's one thing I can't stand, it's shysters on the internet trying to pull a fast one. Or a slow one, although a long-con I can respect. But now he's back with another video that lends significantly more credit to his hoverboard, which I now believe to be real. And apparently he just set the world record for longest distance traveled on a hoverboard by flying the thing 2,252 meters (~7,400-feet) at an event in Sausset-les-Pins, France. Based on the sound it makes, I'm pretty sure it's powered by extremely loud noises. You know I used to be powered by loud noises too. Specifically screaming. Now I'm powered only by granola bars and Pedialyte and my batteries are getting low. *ahem* I said my batteries are getting low. "You're saying want me to feed you?" Like a baby bird.
Keep going for this video, as well as the previous one that I thought was unscrupulous.
Thanks to Sam The Sham, who agrees hoverboards are going to need to be a lot quieter if we're going to use them in spy combat.
