The best part? It's only $8.50 on Amazon.
The jetpacks we were promised may not be as fast as the cars we already have. Professional jetpack daredevil Nick Macomber went head-to-head against a Renault Megane RS in a quarter-mile race and lost fair and square.
He got his jetpack up to 62 mph in 10 seconds, but he couldn't keep up with the Renault, which hits the same speed in just six. He was also handicapped by a slow start: while a car only has to move forward, Macomber's jetpack has to get safely off the ground first.
The pack itself weighs around 110 lbs, including a supply of liquid fuel that gets converted into steam. Macomber steers by changing the direction of its steam nozzles. It was inspired by a NASA jetpack developed in the '60s, but uses newer technology.
Unfortunately for those of us who'd like to take a ride on one of these things, Macomber is one of only a handful of people in the world who can safely operate it.
