Marty McFly's hoverboard from Back to the Future Part II seemed almost too amazing to ever really exist. Well, the future is here now! Bradley Hasemeyer has three mind-blowing new gadgets that will get your feet off the ground and into the sky.

1.  Flyboard® Air

Former Jet Ski world champion Frankie Zapata invented this superman-maker that's powered by four jet engines. The Flyboard® Air can go ten thousand feet in the air, has a max speed of around 93 miles per hour and can fly about ten minutes per charge.

2.  Homemade Hoverbike

 

Sponsored by Ford, it was created by British YouYuber Colin Furze, who is known for his wild inventions. The unusual thing about this vehicle is that it has no steering, no brakes, not even a seat. It’s completely controlled it by shifting your weight. It will not be commercially available, but it’s still an impressive invention.

3.  JB-9 – JetPack Aviation

This jet pack is light enough to run around in and small enough to fit in the trunk of your car. It's only a prototype at the moment, but can fly over ten thousand feet and has a flight time of ten minutes. Hopes are to one day release a commercial version. Fingers crossed!

These three flying gadgets will have you soaring into the world of tomorrow.
