What is up with people trying to fly over water? And we don’t mean in a plane. One of the first Kinetic(Mis)Shifts was the Jetlev flyer, which used a long hose and a stream of water to propel a rider about 10 feet into the air, which we guess gives sort of a sensation of flying. Of course it cost 129,000 €, which is out of the price for most people, which is just one of the many problems we see with these devices.
But if you’re convinced that man should fly over water and you only have about $9,000 to spend there is still hope. For that money you can get the Jetovator instead. It is a sit down version that does roughly the same thing – so it is sort of motorcycle that flies over the water. And for that kind of money you can afford this silly device and have cash left over for lunch. And if that’s still too much might we suggest another (Mis)Shift, the Ski Seat, a sit down water ski. All this makes us think… no, it’s not safe to go back into the water.
Kinetic(Mis)Shift are products that we think deserve to be called out for their utter lack of fitness benefit.
