5 insane gadgets you need

There are some great innovations going on in the gadget world, and we’re here to provide you with a little sneak-peek at some of the insane gadgets that are making waves in the world.

Water jetpack

Okay, everyone has seen this piece of hydro-powered engineering due to the viral internet video when things went south, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that this is one awesome gadget.

The water-powered jetpack pulls water in through a submerged pipe, and allows for a hydro-powered propulsion that can give you more than 9 meters of height at nearly 50 kilometres an hour.

ZBoard

Shown at CES 2013, the ZBoard is the closest thing we currently have to Back to the Future’s hoverboard.

The ZBoard allows users to control the board through leaning.

Forward pressure has the board speed up, with a backwards lean slowing it down.

You will never have to put your foot down to push again with this lethargy-inducing invention.

USB multi-tool

If you always find yourself looking for the right charger for the right device, the USB multi-tool should solve all those problems.

Designed like a Swiss army knife for a new generation, the multitool comes equipped with a number of USB and micro-USB plugs to fit your thirsty device, along with a traditional USB connector to plug it into any computer.

H2O Powered Shower Radio

With green-efficiency becoming an ever-present notion in technology, the H20 powered shower radio will give you entertainment at no cost.

During a shower, the radio will use water flowing through the pipe as an energy source to charge its battery, removing the need for traditional batteries.

Mech for kids

The Japanese are clearly not concerned with the robot apocalypse that we’re heading towards, as Sakakibara Machinery Works have created a fully-functional mechanical suit for kids.

The company has built adult-sized mechs before, but these open up a whole new den of child-based destruction.

The not-so-small mech for kids features a cockpit for one driver, a drill, and a claw. Prepare for mayhem, parents.
