MARTIN JET­PACK

HWM (Singapore) - - Gear -

Yes, the day has come when you can ac­tu­ally or­der a jet­pack and fly. The Martin Jet­pack P12 is pow­ered by a two-stroke V4 en­gine which gen­er­ates 200 horse­power and a ground speed of about 35 mph (or 56.33 km/h) in the air. The com­pany hopes to ship its first jet­packs to the mil­i­tary and first re­spon­ders by 2014, and a sim­pler com­mer­cial model for the gen­eral pub­lic by 2015 — so get ready to see fly­ing rich peo­ple soon.
