Up Up And Away With A Glenn Martin Jetpack

The jetpack has always been a much sought after invention, which as of yet no one has managed to invent a safe, secure and economical version of. In my younger days, I used to envisage a world where people would use jetpack and take to the skies, reducing the need for transportation on the roads. It is disappointing that no jetpack has managed to enter the mainstream market.

Inventor, Glenn Martin, is the latest to have a go at developing a safe jetpack product. It is not exactly a jetpack, since there are no jets involved at all. This jetpack is powered by two gasoline fuelled 200 horsepower fans, which make the jetpack incredibly loud.

The lack of flaming jets is why Martin believes his jetpack is the safest yet, also due to the fact that the jetpack comes with an in-built parachute for added security and will be standard on each version of the jetpack.

The thrill of this flight will cost you $250,000, so obviously will be out of most people's price range. Fore those who can afford it, enjoy the thrill of flight, just watch out for low flying aeroplanes.

I saw this thing in action at osh kosh airventure, and it seemed to be only a way for the inventor to get research donations. Loud, and not safe enough even for him to fly around.

Can anti gravitational poles be generated? If it is made possible,this could be of a great use in floating vehisles in the sky.

The listing price for the aircraft is 100.000usd now. In a few years time, we might afford it when the price drops or we can get them used... 8)
