Using pressurized water, the Jetlev Flyer allows brave souls to experience life as a bird (or is it a plane?)
Despite what the Jetsons taught you, this jetpack won't be available for your morning commute (not for a few more years at least).
For now, keep an eye out during your next seaside vacation, as the first jetpacks to roll of the line will probably be used for exhibition and rental purposes.
How It Works:
A flexible water supply hose delivers power to the jetpack with pressurized water. It also serves as the tether, enforces a flight ceiling, discourages the pilot from flying over land, acts as a stabilizer, dampens vibrations, and maintains forward heading stability of the jetpack in flight.
Even though the jetpack can generate upwards of 500 lbf (2220 N) of thrust for lift and propulsion, the flight controls are isolated from that thrust and only take a few ounces of effort to adjust.
