I Almost Learned To Fly A Jetpack

Gravity Industries make jetpacks. They're not practical. They're not meant for mass use. But they are a lot of fun. They asked if I wanted to try flying one. Thanks to gravity.co/ - this is not sponsored but, obviously, they did give me a flight in a jetpack.

    This looks terrible in reality. Just look at his shoulders. Youd be screaming in pain after an hour of use. Extremely degrading on the rotator cuff. As well as lower back issues due to literally no support and inevitable whiplash. Shows no forethought and reveals this is just someone wasting investors money on what any engineering student would equate to an over engineered toy.

      Damn. I got a notif about someoene tryna call me stupid because you cant run this for an hour. I see its deleted because even they realized they’re argument was hilarious. 1. It can be used more than once, just needs refilled. Same as arguing a car cant go more than a few hours. Just a simple refill. 2. If you cant fly it for any reasonable period of time, is there any practicality? Nope lmfao. I cant wait for people to look back on this 5 years from now and facepalm.

    Amazing to hear they’re sticking to the original ethos. Flying > being strapped to a jet pack. Just like cars enthusiasts are tired of the automation and are going back to cars where you have full control, to feel like you’re super-human and not on a ride, that’s where the joy is.

      @L K With our understanding of physics, there is no practical way to hover a human in the air without the current technology shown. So yes, for now we'll always have to worry about the jetpack having enough fuel and thrust to carry a human.
