Video Shows Flying Hover Boards Are A Real Thing. Used By Military.



This is incredible. A French inventor stole the show in Paris, France as he soared above the crowd on a jet powered hover board. And apparently it's part of the French military. President Emmanuel Macron of France tweeted about it, saying he was very proud of his military.

The inventor is Frankie Zapotta, and says the "fly board" can run for 10 minutes and can reach speeds of 118 mph. He's built several versions that can be used for military of by first responders.

There are definitely some comparisons.

Not all of them great.
