JetLev Water-Powered Jetpacks Going On Sale

Apparently, that water-powered jetpack we reported on about 2 years ago is about to go on sale to the public, but behold, if you want one, it’ll cost around 136 grands.

It’s taken over 10 years for its Canadian inventor, Raymond Li, to realize his dream and see his jetpack go on sale, but judging by the pictures it looks well worth the wait.

The Jetlev has three main components — a lightweight carbon fiber backpack, a 10-meter hose and an engine unit which floats on the water.

The engine sucks water up through the hose and forces it through two adjustable nozzles on the backpack, creating up to 500 pounds of thrust, say Jetlev’s German-based manufacturers, MS Watersports GmbH.

  1. that's awesome however, i think the hoes would get in the way and you can't travel very far….but it's still a cool idea that actually works!!!!

    • Looks like its attached to a mod of a jetski with some super compressor to power the jetpack so you can travel pretty far but with a whole lot of friggin gas.
