I don't know much about this video or if it has been shown before, but it sure looks like fun to me:

Losing thrust would not be fun Grady.


I guess you could flap your arms real fast and hope it slows you down before impact.

Cool. Haven't these things been around for a long time? I think I saw footage of these jet packs from the sixties or so. Does anybody know much about them?

If you could maintain your presence of mind the fall might be fun in the case of losing thrust. It's the sudden stop that is likely to hurt, or not, depending on how hard you hit.

These things have been around for some time. Longer than I have been around, actually.

What drew my attention to this video is that it is apparently a recent video, it looks to be part of a university program, and might indicate new research that might perfect the technology.

Actually, I don't know what that is, but if I had to choose a plausible explanation, a personal jet pack would be a good contender.

Well, the Jet Pack was origionally design in the earily 60's with the intent of being used by the army for scouting missions. However, they have always been pleaged by high manafacturing costs and a very limited range. Their main use has been occasional apperences at special events(I heard that one flew at the opening of the Olympics, but I don't know which year), and in movies. Sean Connery flew with one at the beginning on the 007 movie Thunderball!

Beyond that, there more of a fancy, high-priced flying curiousity than a practical way to fly.
