    This seems a little large, however AWESOME. If these catch on amongst yuppies maybe in ten or twenty years they will be small like James Bond or The Rocketeer's jetpacks.

    I guess they have been working on this for like 30 years. Good to see it finally hitting shelves, so to speak. I hope they sell like crazy, though I will always hate the kind of people who would buy them.

    This looks pretty cool and all, but I want the rocket pack from the Rocketeer. 63 mph < 300 miles per hour.

    Hmm this just seems to be the kind of thing stupid people will screw up bad. Someone gets one crashes and dies, declared to be a "tragedy." Jetpack use is now limited, retarded people ruin everything. The high price will hopefully deter those kind of people though.

    yeah and this as well.
    not to mention the huge ones they will have to make for the massively fat families that hog most of the airspace.
    and you'll have retards plowing into buildings.
    and flybys by MS-13 fags.
    and Drunks.
    it'll be 9/11 every day.
