5 Real-Life Jetpacks

Have you ever been stuck in traffic for hours at a time, wondering if the gridlock will ever end? Don’t just sit there – buy a jetpack!

That’s right, jetpacks are no longer the stuff of science-fiction, and the technology is advancing at an astonishing rate.

Here are five real-life examples that will turn you into a high-flying badass like our good friend Barry!

  1. Have a spare $150,000 lying around? The Martin Jetpack is Barry-approved! This amazing innovation featured in Time magazine’s Top 50 inventions for 2010. Watch it in action here:

  1. FUN FACT: The Water Jetpack actually exists! Some like to tan, others like to surf, but nothing comes close to Adrenalin’s head-turning “Jet Pack Experience”. Take a look:

  1. Is it a Barry? Is it a plane? No, it’s Jetpack Man! Check out this footage of Nick Macomber flying over the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland. Pretty neat, huh?

  1. From the Land Down Under comes the JB-9 Jetpack! Watch in awe as Aussie inventor David Mayman gets up close and personal with the Statue of Liberty. Impressive!

  1. Low on cash? You could always follow in the footsteps of Andy Heck and go with the do-it-yourself approach. There’s no guarantee you’ll beat the traffic, but you could be featured on the Halfbrick website!

The future is here, people. In just a matter of time, we will finally be able to dodge and weave through the air, side-by-side with Barry. Technology is literally reaching new heights, and we couldn’t be more excited!
