The body board is a cool thing but imagine how useful it would be if were powered? That is exactly what the KYMERA is; this design is already in use with some rescue teams. But it is possible that this body board can spark a new revolution in water sports, imagine a powered body board that weighs just 48 pounds, will run for one hour on a single charge and can travel up to 15 mph, that is the Kymera Electric Jet Board by The Inventive Design Group Inc.
These are the details for the KYMERA body board project;
How do you make a body board better? Add an engine! That’s just what we’ve done with the KYMERA. At only 35 pounds, you can put in and get out whenever and wherever you want! No more loading trailers and finding launches – just walk in and ride. The KYMERA is economical too – less than $10 in gasoline keeps you powered all day. And our solar-cell version (currently only available to emergency rescue personel) costs nothing at all to run!
There are no retail prices available for the KYMERA, but backers on Kickstarter can get their hands on one with a pledge of $2,500 (£1,650).
