Flyboards and Hoverboards Hit Miami, Make Everyone's Superhero Dreams Come True

While Hoverboards still don't exist as a thing you can fly in thin air (despite pranks that may or may not have crushed our childhood dreams), waterborne technology is getting ridiculously sophisticated. And some of the newest H2O toys, now available for rental in Miami, are right up there with Marty McFly's favorite mode of transportation.

Meet Flyboards, water jet packs that strap to your feet, and Hoverboards, the waterbound version of that Back to the Future icon.

These things are real, and you can take a test drive 'em right here in the 305.
