Introducing the New Awesome Way to Fly

Please, someone tell me where I can get one of these things… NOW! That really has to be one of the most awesome invention ever. The water jetpack works just like a regular jetpack, but instead of using air to propel yourself in the air, it uses water. Ok, you may be attached to a base at all time, but who cares? And with that music playing in the background, I can only think of one word to describe the experience: glorious.

    • Well Rod, then it won’t sell in New Mexico.
      But here where I live, Denmark europe, we got lot of water/ocean nearby (no matter where you are in Denmark, there will be less than 40 miles to the ocean), so here it could sell good.

  1. I already thought of a practical joke, loosen the connection from the hose to the pack and when one takes off, a couple of minutes later . . . splash!

  3. I’m just concerned about the water jet stream taking a leg of if something happens. Like inertia from turning, pushing your leg towards the jet stream, WILL it take it off? Still awesome!

    • By the looks of it, his legs were strapped into something or at the very least there was a place to rest his feet so they wouldn’t swing back into the stream. But yeah, because of that safety issue, I think it would be hard to get this thing approved for sale to the general public, because some moron is bound to hurt him/herself on it and try and sue the company that makes it. I suppose if you could get some kind of license to operate it, then it would be feasible, but just establishing the requirements and whatnot for the license will take years of ridiculous bureaucratic government process. But if one ever comes out, I’m so buying it. I will start saving right about now.

  5. Pretty pointless considering you're tethered to the spot. The entire point of being able to fly is so you can rise above the madness at ground level and move.

    Plus, it's totally photoshopped, I can tell.

    Shadows = pixelated

    me = pro

  7. I would be more concerned about flipping back too much and shooting back down, pile driving the water and ending up in a wheelchair ( unless it is a water rocket powered wheelchair).

  9. Has anybody even looked them up? they are already for sale for a pretty hefty price, though. The training to fly one is included in the price.

    And you aren't tethered to on spot. That thing this jetpack is connected to floats freely so you pull it along with you. It's a motor and as long as it is in the water, you can go wherever the hell you want.

  11. It was great till one guy lost control and flipped landing on his head. He died later in the hospital. But was brain dead on site.

  13. Looks like the wight is the bottleneck for reaching higher here. Just think of this with a 30kg lighter person on it with a lighter hose as well :D. But then again i guess the water in the hose is the major weight factor.

  15. I'm a little disappointed to read "that music playing in the background." Any true geek would know it as the theme to "2001: A Space Odyssey." It's called "Also Sprach Zarathustra" (in English, "Thus Spake Zarathustra). It's the intro of the piece.
