Russian Firefighters Create Hovercraft Using Water Hoses

This outrageous video from 2013 has only gone viral now. Impressively, a crew of Russian firefighters created a hovercraft of sorts using only a large metal platform and six high-pressure water hoses. 

When all the hoses spray at the same pressure, the firefighter riding the platform slowly lifts off the ground into air! Why hasn’t a company made a similar device for the pool or beach yet?
