video – See him fly!
See the public debut of the Martin Jetpack, a ducted-fan-equipped personal flying vehicle that could keep pilots aloft for 30 minutes or more. Inventor Glenn Martin has been working on the jetpack—which isn’t technically a “jet” pack, given the fans—for 27 years, but he has kept it secret until now. Even his son, Harrison, the 16-year-old test pilot, wasn’t allowed to tell his friends that he’d been cruising around the yard back home in Christchurch, New Zealand in a revolutionary flying vehicle.
What do you think…is this the real thing…will we be powering around on our own relatively soon?
