I don't think it'll be replacing my morning commute anytime soon, but this (http://money.cnn.com/video/#/video/fsb/2007/11/28/fsb.next.little.thing.jet.pack.fsb?cnn=yes) is awesome.


I want one I want one I want one.

Jet-pack, cool! Only flies for forty-five seconds, way un-cool!

That is awesome. The thought of plummeting to earth midway through the flight would worry me just a wee bit, but it sure would be exhilarating!

Pretty cool, though I see a lot of potential for a bunch of rich people hurting themselves in all sorts of stupid new ways.

If youtube wasn't 'blocked' here at work, I'd dig up a clip from Top Gear of Jet-Powered roller skates.

But it'll have to wait until I'm home.

Yeah, that part would kind of suck. The video says the consumer model would have 10 minutes worth of flight, which would be juuust long enough for me to forget about the time limit.


But wouldn't it be great to do that in a traffic jam? :)

What better way to pass through the pearly gates than upside down wearing a jet pack?

Oh, that would be much better! Get me about halfway to work....
