Meet Ezfly Hoverboard, The Segway That Can Fly In The Sky

Close

Let's face it: when living in major cities such as San Francisco or New York City, commuting can take a stressful toll on people who go to and from work on a daily basis.

However, that could all change soon, as inventor Franky Zapata has created a new hoverboard that can fly in the sky.

The Ezfly Hoverboard Throws Riders Into The Sky

Called Ezfly, the hoverboard resembles a Segway but uses jet-powered thrusters to throw riders into the sky at 80 miles per hour. Similar to riding on a Segway, riders should hold on to handgrips that help steer body weight while flying into the sky.

Video footage surfaced on YouTube recently showing military personnel flying in the sky using Zapata's latest invention. In the video, there are about a dozen riders willing and ready to test out Zapata's Ezfly hoverboard over a body of water in Texas. All riders made it happen safely.

Unlike skydiving, it doesn't seem like a lot of training is involved in getting started with the Ezfly hoverboard. All riders make it seem relatively easy to be thrown into the sky by Zapata's new flying hoverboard.

Zapata Always Had Big Dreams To Fly In The Sky

What inspired Zapata to create the Ezfly hoverboard? Zapata had spent many years dedicated to being a jet ski pilot but always had big dreams to fly.

"My inspiration came from Iron Man," said Zapata. "I was a jet-ski pilot for many years, but I always dreamed to fly as a superhero — and thanks to my experience in hydro-propulsion I made it possible."

This isn't the first flying hoverboard Zapata has invented. The Frenchman has been known to make headlines for creating a jet-powered hoverboard called the Flyboard Air, which could fly through the sky at a height of 10,000 feet. In fact, even celebrities such as Justine Bieber and Kylie Jenner tried Zapata's hoverboards when they were first invented.

Zapata Breaks Guinness World Record

Zapata has also set the Guinness World Record title for the farthest hoverboard flight back in 2016, where he managed to reach a distance of up to 2,252 meters, which beat the previous record set at 905 feet by Catalin Alexandru Duru.

Ezfly Hoverboard Pricing Details

We're not sure when Ezfly hoverboard will be available to the public or how much it will cost. The Flyboard Air currently costs around $250,000, according to the website. We can expect the Ezfly hoverboard to cost around the same price, if not with a higher price tag.
