Not filmed by an amateur in 4K resolution with a Dutch angle on a Tuesday, Clearly fake.

I recently travelled to Sion to witness the Flyboard air in person.

And it was real, and in no way i could see or imagine was kind of trickery involved.

so my judgment and perception about these devices has been proven to be wrong at least in that instance and that is the one i spent the most time looking into.

So by association i was most likely wrong about many of these other devices too.

So i would like to state that i no longer believe that they are ALL hoaxes anymore.

We do live in an age of viral marketing hoaxes and brilliant cgi, but i guess i went a little full retard here in hindsight.

its been educational


I will leave up my videos about them as i am not one to run away from my mistakes, but i will and have changed the descriptions to reflect my change of outlook.

If you enjoy finding and dissecting viral marketing hoaxes I would again encourage you to check out:

Analyzing potential hoaxes and trying to find out if something is likely to be real or fake, and if it's fake, how it's done, is something I really enjoy.

A more user friendly version of the flyboard air can be seen in the video below

Depending on the future costs, if they can pump these out cheap enough there is a good chance some commercial operation might start up letting members of the public have a go flying.
If so - i will visit that place and do a flight. Will be an epic conclusion to my saga.

I think I'd want to be wearing a life jacket in addition to the helmet.

i don't,

But that has never stopped me doing stuff before.

If it becomes commercial and a test flight is humanly affordable and within hitching distance, i will make the money and do it , or wait until such a time that it becomes affordable.

For instance, if it s $2000 for a flight i ain't going to do it until it get cheaper, but if its $500, i could likely make it happen.

I'd ask to use full body armour. Like the lightweight downhill mountain bike stuff.

I have no idea why they don't wear it. Its insane. Gear like that weighs very little and in a crash can make the differnce.
What would have been cuts and bruises can be reduced to just being a little shook up.
What would have been broken bones can be reduced to bruises.
What would have been compound fractures and shattered bone can be reduced to clean breaks.

If/when i ever fly it i will try my best to wear an armour suit.

Because lthough you aare flying over water, you are not landing on it.
