The existing jetpack prototypes aren’t even really jetpacks at all. Two guys, however, want to change all that. They want to build an actual strap-on jetpack which will be powered by four micro jet turbine engines that can product a hundred pounds of thrust. Put four of these together and that will be enough to lift a person off the ground.
The jetpack, called the Jet Vest, is currently up for funding on Kickstarter. But while you won’t be able to get one yourself, you will be able to get the ride of your life if you put down five grand.
