We have been shipping these for about eight months. Getting a great global reception. We call it the Jetblade, it attaches to a jet ski and uses the force of the water thrust to fly. We developed it in Rhino and was on a very fast track to development of less than five months to market. Previously we had built the X-Jetpack, also in Rhino, so an experience and production base was established.
These were the initial production renders in Flamingo.

The actual product. The black pods were retooled for additional floatation by going back into the Grasshopper creation macro/script. This allowed us to retool a rotomold with a re-design time of one day and three weeks to get new production floats.
We were pleased in this process that there was so little surprise in the actual product, the renderings and visualizations were very close to the reality.
