Finally the Jetpacks we were promised by the Jetson’s Well not really but still pretty cool. Many very cool videos (they broke link so I removed it ) on the Jet-man website show the jetpack in action. The flight is controlled by body movements (not controls, other than the gas). To fly, currently, Yves Rossy jumps from a plane and then extends the wings turns on the jets. Some additional improvements are needed to allow Yves to achieve ground take-offs, aerobatic operations and vertical climbs.
