Now Wealthy Nerds Will Be Even More Annoying
First the Segway, and now these dudes finally invented a jetpack that actually works, and it costs $90,000.
- "Hey guys, just dropping in to say 'hi'!"
Martin’s jetpack is classed as an ultralight aircraft, so you don’t need a pilot’s license fly it. Martin will force buyers to undergo training first, though. As its FAQ so rightly points out: “to attempt to fly any aircraft without professional instruction is extremely foolhardy.” There are some safety features, though. If the engine dies, a parachute pops out like an airbag in a car, so the only thing you need worry about is crashing into passing planes.
