The Greenbird is two vehicles: a land craft and an ice craft, powered only by the wind. The GreenBird is carbon composites to keep minimum weight, and designed every surface to provide lift is maximised, but more importantly, drag is minimised. It enables the land craft to travel at between 3 & 5 times the real wind speed, depending on the surface traction.

If you want to swim like a dolphin? The Geek engineer has developed a dolphin-inspired fin, called Lunocet(about $1,250-$1,500). It is a 2.5-pound (1.1-kilogram) monofin made of carbon fiber and fiberglass that attaches to an aluminum foot plate at a precise 30-degree angle. The fin spans almost 42-inch(a meter) wide, which with three times the surface area of conventional swim fins. They claimed that Lunocet users have already hit about eight miles (13 kilometers) per hour, nearly twice as fast as Olympic Gold Medal swimmer Michael Phelps at his speediest.
"The mechanism functions like a wing to generate a lift force," which is directed forward and turned into thrust, says Frank Fish, a marine biologist at West Chester University of Pennsylvania.

JetLev Flyer, the amazing water-propelled jetpack! Watch the video!
"Our first production model JETLEV-FLYER is undergoing final testing by MS Watersports GmbH, our German licensee, and results will be available soon. There will be two versions, one with a 155 HP engine and the other with 215 HP. Top speed of the 215 HP model is expected to easily exceed 40 mph (64 km/h), and flight ceiling will still be restricted to 28 feet (8.5 m) for safety reasons. Specifications are subject to change and will be announced after final testing has been completed. For performance and duration records and other special applications, future versions of JETLEV-FLYER could reach speeds in excess of 50 mph (80 km/h), altitudes of 50 feet (15 m), cruise duration of 5 hours, range exceeding 180 miles (300 km), and carry payloads in excess of 1000 lbs (454 kg). Ultimately, it is largely safety considerations, not technical limitations that will dictate the limits of design. "
