Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Everybody dreams about flying through the air like their favourite action hero at some point in their life...and now it's possible with the new Jetlev-Flyer - a futuristic jet pack.

Canadian engineer Raymond Li designed the water-powered machine so that it can hover up to 30 metres in the air and reach speeds of up to 22mph as you make your way across the water.

And now fans of Superman or even James Bond can get their hands on this high-tech device for just £110,000.

The device was being tested out on the beaches of Miami, Florida, and onlookers were able to watch the pilot as he propelled into the air and flew across the water.

The Jetlev-Flyer has a 10 metre hose and an engine which doubles as a flotation device. The hose is essential because water is sucked up and spat out through two nozzles which are mounted on the users back.

It took more than 10 years to perfect the design and if you don't fancy splashing out all that cash to buy one, there is a chance it might be coming to a holiday resort near you.

So you could soon be fulfilling those childhood dreams of flying across the water like Superman or doing stunts in your very own James Bond movie.
