Short on details but they are promising 100 times the endurance of the original bell Jetpacks, which would be a 43 minute jaunt or so.

That would be awesome if they delivered, I would totally love to Jetpack my commute.

Well the fact that it doesn't run on ultra pure hydrogen peroxide is a huge step forward! I'll be interested to check it out when I go this year!

That was the Rocket Belt. The Jet Pack was a actual turbojet. As far as flying went, the Bell Jet Packs worked. But they were so damn slow, no one could figure out what to do with them.

I have always wondered what Williams could do with the idea if they put their minds to it.

I'm sure they will price it way beyond the reach of us peons even if it actually works...

It will be like the "personal transporter" I saw on Discovery channel last night. Very cool, but insanely expensive.
