Like the plot of a Marvel comic book, soldiers in the United States military may soon be flying into battle on jet-powered platforms like the infamous Green Goblin from the Spider-Man series. At face value, it may sound completely unbelievable and ridiculous, but it could be closer to becoming a reality than you might imagine.
In June, Franky Zapata shocked the tech word when he revealed the Flyboard Air — a jet-powered hoverboard that can travel 93mph and up to 10,000 feet in the sky. Implant Science, a supplier for the Department of Homeland Security, purchased Zapata’s firm shortly thereafter, leading many to believe that the hoverboards will soon be making their way onto the battlefield.
And why not at least test out the technology? War is ever-changing and seems to become more and more unpredictable by the day.
