An old invention comes to life

many many years ago, my senior product design class project was a water powered scooter.  Recently, on a trip to costco, I was pleasantly surprised to find the very toy.

They had similar details, such as the propeller size and grill size.
Unlike our design, this was way smaller. However, it has been over 16 years (ours was done in 1997), so circuits have come a long way.  Also, its missing the "cool factor" we had in our design, the LED light bars that glow when you zoom ultra fast.
