A New Zealand-based company, the Martin Aircraft Company , is now taking orders for what might be the first really usable (not the same as practical, or even safe) jetpack for around US$90,000.
It even has a parachute system which, according to the manufacturer, will save you “from a catastrophic failure down to a reasonably low altitude,” which may still be considerably higher than you’d ever take this thing. As pilots say, taking off is easy; it’s the landings that can be tough.
But enough about the safety details. Put 10% down today, take delivery in a year, and don’t tell Anthem Blue Cross what you’re up to.
