Jetlev R200

Coming into production in 2012, the Jetlev R200 is the first ever water powered jet pack. It is the invention of Chinese-born Raymond Li who currently resides in Canada. His inspiration came from a jet pack in the James Bond film 'Thunderball' and he sketched his first concept for a jet pack in 2000. Realising that it was too difficult to build a fuel powered one he shifted his focus to a water powered pack. His research began in 2004 and by 2008 he had his first prototype. But it isn't simply buying the pack and flying it. In addition to the pack, boat, hoses, radio and control transmitter, the package also includes a pilot's course and safety training. It will be all worth it in the end as the pack boasts a top speed of 25 mph, a flight ceiling of 30 ft, a duration of 4 hours and a range of up to 80 miles.

Bladefish 5000

Scuba diving, snorkeling and swimming just got more fun with this underwater scooter. Having one of these will allow you to navigate under water faster at a speed of 3.75 mph. It has three different settings for speed and can reach a maximum depth of 130 feet.. Charging the battery takes 2-4 hours to give a run time of 70-120 minutes. The best characteristic of the Bladefish 5000 is its portability. Weighing just 10.2 lbs (4.6 kg) and dimensions of 15" x 14" x 6" renders it very small and light allowing you to take it with you on a scuba holiday.


AquaClimb

Invented to give children the thrill of danger in a safe environment, the AquaClimb range are climbing walls integrated to a pool environment. This allows you to simply fall off the climbing wall into the water eliminating any possible risk of injury. The more impressive of the range of climbing walls is the AquaClimb Sport that was invented by Christofer Born from Germany. Using a stainless steel frame it can be mounded to the pool wall or deck of indoor and outdoor swimming and diving pools. AquaClimb is now an upcoming sport and many pools use it in their fitness programs but it is mostly purchased by consumers to entertain teenagers and adults.


PC of the Swim-Rings

Another idea that allows you to keep a PC close to you at all times. The PC of the Swim-Rings is designed by Barry Lai Yin Lock and was a concept shown at the Next Gen PC Design Competition . It is essentially a waterproof Computer connected to a floating pool-ring and allows the user to enjoy movies, music and games from the water. It has wireless capabilities as well, so surfing the internet from your pool or in the waves at the beach is now a possibility. Some of its features include Bluetooth, webcam, 7-inch LCD display, stereo speaker set, finger-touch input, water cooling system, solar powered processor, magnetic charging interface and GPRS in case you drift off to sea while busy "surfing".
