Flyboard Air creator bought by US counter explosives company

Standard

French jet ski champion Franky Zapata made some serious waves back in 2011 when he showed off his ambitious water-jet Flyboard, which uses a jet ski motor to pump water through a pair of boots and hand-held stabilizers. Just this April he upped the ante significantly, with a new device that swaps out water jets for jet engines, and quickly used it to start breaking records. Things are continuing to move at quite a pace, with US company Implant Sciences today announcing its intention to purchase Zapata Industries. The company is a leading manufacturer of explosive detection tech for the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
