Man Creates Jet Pack, Becomes Real Life Iron Man
Of all of sci-fi’s weirdest and wildest fictional inventions, the jetpack is undoubtedly one of our most-wanted (that and Cheesecake 3D Printers).
And now one man’s crazy/inspired mission to bring that reality to life has reached fruition.
David Mayman took to the skies above London’s River Thames to pilot his self-created jetpack - and it looked AMAZING.
The jet engine jetpack is powered by mini versions of what you’d find on a jumbo jet, and he’s already on a mission to create an electric version of the pack to be available in 2019 (for the teensy sum of £200,000).
While his inaugural flight was limited to around 120ft above the Thames, the finished product will have the capacity to travel more than 100 miles and hour, and up to 10,000ft.He’s basically a real life Iron Man and we would very much like one now please.
