The wizards over at Jetman Dubai built a bad ass jet-powered wingsuit and say they just reached a major milestone with it -- a pilot took-off from the ground and then transitioned into a high-altitude flight! It looks like so much fun in this video. I've wanted a jet-pack ever since I saw the movie the Rocketeer as a kid (also when Steve Urkel built one to reach the top of the rope in gym class on the classic American TV sitcom Family Matters) and would love to have one of these. The pilot only flew the jet-pack for about 3 minutes before he pulled his parachute...so I think it might be a little bit before you get to take one of these to work or the grocery store.
