Martin Jetpack

While it’s not quite ready for prime time just yet, the first practical-ish jet pack is only a couple of years (and a probable couple hundred grand) away. The Martin Jetpack couples a 200hp gasoline engine to two large twin-ducted fans for vertical takeoff and landing, a cruise speed of a roughly 35 mph, plus a range of 18 miles per tank of premium automotive gasoline. The jetpack is also easy to fly thanks to computer controlled stabilization, can hit altitudes of several thousand feet, and packs a variety of safety features including a rapid-deploy ballistic parachute, roll cage, and crumple undercarriage.
