Jetpacks Go Mainstream

Capable of 30 minutes of flight at around 60 miles per hour, the Martin Jetpack can apparently go as high as 8,000 feet in the air. Naturally, its creator has equipped the device with an integrated ballistic parachute, just in case something goes wrong with its engine while you’re flying around. You certainly wouldn’t want that machine to stop working on you while you look like a minuscule dot to people on the ground.
