If you’ve been thinking that it’s 2010 already and just where the hell is that jetpack they promised you? The wait is over. Martin Aircraft Company has released a commercially available unit that is not obscenely priced nor terribly hard to fly.
It requires about the skill level of an ultralight pilot, and retails for about what you’d spend on a high-end motorcycle. As jetpacks go, this is a bargain. Okay, so it’s only got a range of about 30 miles on it’s 5-gallon fuel tank. Yeah, I know, that’s about the fuel economy of a Winnebago. But did I mention it ‘s a freakin’ jetpack!
If I had one of these puppies I’d never work from home again.
