Flying boat is ahead of the pack (and above)

Brazilian company makes you a secret agent.


It's so difficult to maintain one's individualism these days. Car-boats, once at the top of the 007 cool meter, are hardly unique anymore. But there's still hope: Enter the "Flying Boat" from Brazil-based BRio.

It comes as a kit, which might seem kind of expensive at $10,000, especially because Gearfuse says the cost doesn't include the engine. Still, it's a fraction of what one of those new jet packs will set you back, and it promises to stay airborne longer than a minute.

Best of all, if the flying mechanism fails, you at least have a shot at surviving with a water-surface landing. Which is a lot more than we suspect will be possible with one of those personal rockets.
