Your Cost-Effective, Personal Jetpack Is Coming Soon


It's finally happening: The M2K Group, a corporation that helps manufacture expensive things, and Martin Aircraft, an aviation-parts company, are reportedly all set to introduce the world’s first personal jetpack for commercial sale. The amazing Father's Day gift, which has been reported on since last year, is capable of vertical takeoff of more than 1,000 feet per minute and can cruise at 100 kilometers per hour. It should hit the market within the next eighteen months. We thought this would be the type of gadget that civilians like us could never afford, but there's good news, via Tech 2:

"One of the main advantages of the jetpack is the lower cost as compared to a helicopter."

There's hope for us yet.
