The New Martin Jetpack: This is Progress?

The Martin Jetpack
The Martin Jetpack is aiming to be the first commercial rocket belt. For $75-$100,000 you'll soon be able to strap on something the size of a Sears lawn tractor that will lift you about 5 feet off the ground.

Sorry but we're just not that impressed.


Fifty years ago we had the Bell Aerospace Rocket Belt
It was a fraction of the size of the Martin Jetpack and actually looked cool.

Of course, even the Bell Rocket Belt had nothing on the Commando Cody version.
