Life as a Silicon Valley tech bro is awesome because you’re rich, and all that sweet, green money buys you very expensive hobbies. The latest craze: foiling. It evidently feels like flying except you’re on the water and your bones get broken.
In the grand ranking of remote-controlled vehicles, the only thing better than a remote controlled plane is a remote-controlled boat. At least, that’s what I used to think. After playing with Parrot’s new generation of Minidrones, I realize that a remote controlled hydrofoil is the true champion of RC anything.
The Quadrofoil looks like a vehicle from a James Bond action sequence. But while the world's favorite spy seemingly has no regard for the environment while he's blowing things up, this personal hydrofoil is powered by an eco-friendly electric motor.
Lift off! This concept personal watercraft zooms above the water's surface with the help of twin hydrofoils that act as wings. Without the drag from all those waves, its top speeds can trump those of a regular jet-ski.
