Safe and Affordable Jetpack Appears to Be Neither 

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

First off, $90,000 doesn’t really jive with the definition of the word ‘affordable’. This may be a relatively inexpensive price compared to planes and previous jetpack prototypes, but it’s still out of the price range of, well, nearly everyone.

As well, attaching yourself to two giant freaking engines is unlikely to seem like a good way to maintain your grip on life. But fear not, gentle readers! The company, Martin Aircraft, “will force buyers to undergo training first”. Yes, that oughta safen things right up.
