Jet Packs, Finally On Sale

Bad_CRC1945 writes “The good news: Not one, but two companies are selling jet packs. The bad news: The tech has a long way to go. In the past, potential buyers have been stymied by two problems: Rocket belts aren’t for sale, and even prototypes run on modern-day fuel (as opposed to whatever the Jetsons use) which means rocket belts can weigh upwards of 100 pounds, with only enough fuel to stay aloft for under a minute.” That second problem’s still with us, but the article hints that jet-fuel options (for the brave) could considerably extend users’ time aloft.
