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.

Videos like this make me wish the park bench was still going. Hearing you explain your wild experiences to matt was always a great supplement to the video of the experience itself.

Flying over deep water seems like a bad idea with this jetpack unless they have some way to take it off fast.

The difference between this and car / boat / plane racing is, that those are very dynamic modes of traveling but this is very static mode. There is a reason, helicopter racing is not a thing

Imagine driving a motorcycle, where the front wheel of the bike is attached ONLY to your front arms? That would be crazy. Well, this jetpack is sort of like that = it's not going to be a success. Either put them all together in one spot (like a motorcycle is put all together in one package) or forget it.

I love his development thought. I don't want more buttons and knobs and bigger computers. You are the flight computer. We're not putting you on a jet, we're giving you the tools and letting you learn your brain how to fly.

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.

It's enermous energy to just fight against the gravity, every second. This energy contributes to global warming. So that's why flying is seldom a viable option for transportation
