Thunderpack gives you wings, flies you places
Like the Personal Jet Wing, Thunderbolt Aerosystems has developed the Thunderpack, which is a “rocket belt” that can thrust you through the air at up to 75 miles per hour. The company believes in making this jetpack available to the masses in a format that will use ubiquitous fuels. Hopefully it will be used by diverse consumers like firemen, forest fire control forces, coast guards, Red Cross, border patrol, high-risk rescues and for any natural disaster extreme transportation requirements. So far the tests have managed to keep pilot up for only 45 seconds, but hopefully one day you will be able to travel to work using it.
Thunderbolt Aerosystems’ Thunderpack, will cost you $100,000 when it comes out.
