Jetpacks Are Finally Here!

A New Zealand Company has begun production on the first commercially available JETPACKS!!   And (according to the company) you will not even need a pilot's license to operate one of these badboys!    They fly at speeds of up to 60 mph and as high up as a mile!!   They'll set you back about $75 grand....but hey, you'll be able to FLY!!!

Here is the video for the jetpack: http://www.martinjetpack.com/video-gallery.aspx The jet pack looks quite large and bulky. It is definately not like the Rocketeer! The steering of the jet pack reminds me of steering a hovercraft, where there are no sharp turns, and no stopping suddenly. There is a cooler video of the Jetman, Swiss adventurer Yves Rossy who will try to be the first to fly across the English Channel using a single, jet-propelled wing attached to his back.
