Personal Jetpacks Are Here – video


We've now found out what we're blowing the Ransom Note 2016 budget on. Tech company Jetpack Aviation have unveiled the JB-9, the world's first portable jetpack. Basically the JB-9 is the best chance you've ever had of becoming an airborn super hero, and, really, what more could you ask? As you can see in the video below, this thing can have you zooming around the place like steel-clad Icarus, and it's light enough to carry as a back pack. Apparently it reaches speeds of over 60 mph, and has enough fuel to last 10 minutes. By our calculation, that's more than enough to get back home to Hackney after a night out raving in Peckham. Night tube? who needs a night tube?
