The Top New Gear of Summer: Golfboard Water Bikes Electric Quadrofoil Speedboat E-Skateboard and More

Is futuristic "gear" the new trend in gadgets and inventions? Robb Report clues us in on the top new gear of summer, if you can afford it and have the time to enjoy it.

For stand-up golfers, check out the new golfboard that carries bag, clubs and player. It is a hit and already available at nearly 100 golf courses.

Have you ever dreamt of water-biking? We want a couple of these for the family!

A "quiet" electric "Quadrofoil" speedboat is straight out of tomorrow. 21 knots!

How about an electric skateboard that goes 20 mph and ranges 20 miles?

Who can resist a light designer kayak you fold up into the size of a college football tote bag? Take it with you!

Handcrafted standup paddleboards to keep you fit are at the same time also works of art. Take a look.

Climb the heights with a high end mountain bike made through cooperation of bicycle and automobile engineers.

Imagine a cast concrete no-warp billiard table or the same construct for table tennis. Weatherproof, at a cost.

Photograph it all with an innovative Leica Q that has great specifications but is nearly light as a feather.

Faster, lighter, better. That is the design-oriented but practical future of gear.
