The WaterBlade is a contraption, designed by architect Gaemli Cruz, that is more than just a fitness device for your legs, abs and derriere -- it helps you (sort of) experience the feeling of walking on the water. Perhaps the best way to describe it is as a fusion between stand-up paddleboards and human-powered water-walking devices.

The contraption's deck features a gun-like device that is used to start and stop the motor. It also allows users to switch between three reverse speeds and five forward speeds. With a top speed of roughly 10 km/h, there's plenty of fun to be had with the WaterBlade out on the water.

The blending of fitness, water-sports and plain old fun is becoming increasingly popular, with the WaterBlade looking like a product that will appeal to people of many persuasions.
