Personal Jetpacks Closer to Becoming a Reality [VIDEO]
Traffic backed up on Cache Rd.? Wouldn't be a problem if you had your own personal jetpack - and they could be coming soon.
Martin Jetpack, a New Zealand company which has been working on the personal jetpack for the last 27 years, had a successful test run of its latest prototype at 5,000 feet over the weekend.
The flight lasted for 10 minutes. A dummy was sent into the air rather than an actual human being, implying that the Martin Jetpack isn't going to be available at your local authorized jetpack dealer by, say, the end of the summer.
But Martin does hope to get its invention to the public soon. It currently has a waiting list of 2,500 for the $75,000 personal aviation device.
Check out the Martin Jetpack in action.
