Powered by a rechargeable battery that keeps the $350 Sea-Doo toy running for almost 60 minutes between six to eight-hour-long charges, it can surprisingly support riders up to 154 pounds in weight.

But an adult-sized version isn’t a completely implausible thought. Even the military relies on inflatable boats that can withstand untold abuses when racing into danger.
