Beat traffic with your own personal Jet Pack
At one time my vision for the future included entire meals in a pill and a personal jet pack to fly around in. One half of that vision is now a reality thanks to the Martin Aircraft Company! Check out their Personal Jet Pack!!!
The company has just received an "Experimental Flight Permit" in New Zealand. (Quick rant: They filmed Lord of the Rings in New Zealand. They not have jet packs in New Zealand. We are so slacking here in the US.) Anyway, the company's website has started an "interest list" if you'd like to be one of the first to get your own. The cost? About $150,000.
