Well, it’s either an extremely well edited video, or [JetPack Aviation] has actually come up with a working JetPack.
According to their site, this JetPack has been in development for the past 25 years, and the current revision is capable of speeds of up to 100mph, and lasts for over 10 minutes. Just last week they flew it around the Statue of Liberty for a promo — yet this is the first time we’re hearing of it…
There’s a documentary coming out next year about the development of it, so it seems like a lot of effort to go to if it’s simply a hoax…
Watch their maiden JetPack flight after the break, and let us know what you think!
One peculiar thing we spotted in the video is that there’s a GoPro monopod strapped to the back of the JetPack in this shot, but immediately after… no GoPro.
So either these shots were taken from different shoots, or there’s something fishy. Call us skeptical, but we’ll be super happy to be proved otherwise!
What do you think? Get sleuthing. And yes, we know real jetpacks do exist, but those don’t allow for vertical take off like this one does!
