Water Jetpack latest in Aqua fun?

by Mark R

See this man in this blurry photo? He is defying gravity with a jetpack, but not the type that we normally think of when we think of the word jetpack. The fact is that most of the jetpacks that we see can only sustain a few minutes worth of flight time and are very dangerous.

Someone has invented a water jetpack that is safe, fun, and the flights last a lot longer. You can see it in action on the YouTube video after the jump.

Of course, there are some limits to the height of the Water Jetpack. As you can see, the man is tethered to a pump that is the source of the gravity-defying water pressure. There also seems to be some sort of boat thing behind him, and I’m not certain if he is controlling it, or if its just being dragged.

This water jetpack looks like the best thing to happen to water since the jet-ski. I’m not certain how long it would take you to learn how to fly this, but it looks easier than water-skiing, which is hard to get the hang of.

Well, a lot of gadget blogs have been posting this particular clip everywhere, but nothing about when it will be available to the general public. I honestly can’t wait to try it myself.
