    Because this is the world we live in, Grant Engler and Amanda Volf got married over the weekend on a beach and left the ceremony with a pair of water jetpacks. Personally, I think Grant should have been carrying his new bride, but that's just me and I'm the most romantic man i... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to see some bro with a jetpack race a foreign sporty-ish car (Renault Megane RS)? Well you're in luck, because that is WHAT THIS IS. Unfortunately, 23-year old "daredevil" Nick Macomber doesn't know the meaning of daring the devil and gets smoked. Today's short, ... / Continue →

    The Flyboard from Zapata Racing is basically a water powered jetpack similar to this one that this guy used to almost eat a dock, except for your feet. So, in summary, exact same thing but strapped to your feet. I guess it's all a matter of personal taste, are you more of a j... / Continue →

    Jetpacks: in the future our kids will fly them to school. Well, your kids anyways -- I'm not having any. You see, despite how bottom-of-the-barrel-roll dumb I might be, I'm still smart enough to know that, while there's no question I'd make the world's greatest father, I'd ma... / Continue →

    We've already heard about Martin's jetpack several times in the past, and now, finally, they're going into production -- and for $25K less than previously expected. Oh -- oh God -- JETBONER! The Martin Aircraft Company jetpacks have about 200 HP coming out of their dual pro... / Continue →

    Super hi-res shot HERE. This is an "untooned" version of Buzz Lightyear by CG artist Raoni Nery. Well, what do you think -- is this what Buzz would look like if he were real? Your guess is as good as mine. Except not at all because I'm a notoriously good guesser. Just sayi... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Japanese man flying around a television studio with a homemade jetpack strapped on. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the video to play here at work so I've had to rely on the word of my tipsters. So, give it to me straight -- is it as awesome as I'd hoped? ... / Continue →

    Remember Swiss rocketeer Yves Rossy, the self proclaimed 'Rocket Man' (formally 'Fusion Man')? Well he may lose his title after stealing a move from Amelia Earhart's playbook and crash landing at sea in an attempt to fly from Morocco to Spain. Geez, way to fail to inspire. O... / Continue →
