The x2 Sport Underwater Jet Pack is the world’s first wearable jet pack that lets you fly through the water faster than an Olympic swimmer  They are currently available to pre-order on Indiegogo.

We lost you at pre-order didn’t we?

The jet pack was created by brothers Simon and Chris Parke of Portsmouth based SCP Marine Innovation and uses patented Hydra thrusters to propel you at superfast speeds (top speed in excess of 6mph).

All you have to do is point your arms in the direction you want to go and control your speed using the handy throttle grip attached to your wrist.

Oh, and it comes in five different colours (to match your superhero costume, of course).

While the early bird jet packs are now, sadly, sold out, you could get your hands on one for $2,000 (£1,615) here.

Or, if you want to try before you buy, you could splash out $150 (£97) for the x2 Sport experience.

If crowdfunding proves successful (what do they mean ‘if’?), delivery is planned for September next year.

We know what you’re doing next summer.
