Jetpacks have been a pipe dream for many of us ever since we first watched Thunderball, but the expense, heat, weight, and potential for disaster have kept us grounded. Now the well-heeled among us can experience this unique form of flight with minimal risk aboard the Jetlev Flyer ($99,500). This crazy, water-powered backpack uses a 250hp motor and fuel tank at the water’s surface to send gallons of the wet stuff up to the seat, where it’s blasted back down to the ground, providing a maximum top speed of 22 mph and a maximum height of 28 feet, limited by the hose. All without the need to watch for Goombas.
