Jet Packs: A thing of the future? Man uses hydrogen and nitrogen-powered jet pack

August 8, 2019


Is it a bird ? Is it a plane? No, it’s a man
with a jetpack soaring round the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC. The demonstration, shows a man blasting off
inside the Ronald Reagan Building with the help of a hydrogen and nitrogen-powered jet
pack. The event, now in its second year, is part
of the Smithsonian magazine’s The Future is Here Festival which will explore science,
technology, culture and the arts. And it’s no the first time jet packs have
blasted off. A company in New Zealand, the Martin Aircraft, is currently developing commercially
available jetpacks and came one step closer to their goal last year when they were given
civil aviation approval for manned test flights. We have over 10,000 people who have actually
enquired as to where they might be able to purchase these in the future. But with a starting price tag of around $150,000,
jetpacks might not be for everyone.

  1. Jetpacks were already there in the 80s, though one of these is only able to fly a max of 30 seconds or so

  2. DOESNT MATTER HOW MUCH IT COSTS. I WILL BUY MANY OF THEM AND FLY AROUND IN A LEATHERFACE COSTUME

  3. Blah, jet packs have existed for years, governments wont let the common people have the it would be anarchy.

  4. Wait until the Islamists get their hands on a few of those. You can say goodbye to The Shard when they've jetted up there and dropped a few bombs onto the spire 

  5. you cant swim you cant walk you cant fly without some political agency threatening you if you dont obey its rules. Free as a bird in being a human in prison planet earth. Still better to be milked for taxes than slaughtered like cattle.

  6. Saw this Bullshit in 1984 opening ceremony of the LA Olympics. 30 years ago. SO what? NO improvements in all that time no? Or maybe just taking the public for idiots yet again?
