Every once in awhile an invention comes along that’s so genius we wonder why no one had ever thought of creating it before. Today is one of those days.

In March I thought I had just about seen it all when we shared some information on the Hyundai Kite, a dune buggy that transforms into a jet ski. And yet, here we are today talking about FlyNano, an aircraft that’s half plane, half jet ski, and requires no pilot’s license. Well, at least in Europe. You’ll have to check with your local authority here to be sure, but still, how fun is that?

Granted, some flying experience is recommended before strapping yourself into a FlyNano. Especially since it can reach speeds of up to 75mph. It would certainly suck to take a header into the water after shelling out tens of thousands of dollars for one of the greatest grown-up toys we’ve ever seen.

The single-seat FlyNano is 100 percent electric, weighs under 70kg (154lbs), boasts the highest power-to-weight ratio available in the market, and, bonus, it’s easy to transport as you just detach the wing and body to make it fit into the FlyNano trailer.
