Flying Hoverboard Steals the Show at Bastille Day Parade

Sunday was Bastille Day, a commemoration of the storming of the military prison in Paris during the French Revolution. The traditional parade in Paris featured something new- a man flying on a hoverboard (called a flyboard) above the parade, wielding a rifle. 
According to The Guardian, its rider was Franky Zapata, a French inventor and former jet ski champion who has been showing off the flyboard for a few years now. Zapata actually set a new Guinness World Record for farthest hoverboard flight on the flyboard in 2016. 
 A good time was had by all. (via Mashable)
