Jetpacks

World’s Fastest Jet Suit

World’s Fastest Jet Suit

WIRED takes a look at the Gravity jet suit, a plaything for the wealthy that makes James Bond fantasies come true. Richard Browning’s invention can fly at speeds up to 32 mph, though it requires a level of fitness and balance in order to safely fly it.

Jetpack Samurai

Jetpack Samurai

We suspect there’s more wire fu than meets the eye in this promo video from Japanese mobile operator SoftBank, but it’s still pretty awesome to watch two sword-wielding samurai go at it while floating around with jetpacks. We would so pay to see this movie.

Jetpack Drag Race

Jetpack Drag Race

Well here’s something you don’t often see at the dragstrip – a guy wearing a jetpack racing against a Dodge Challenger. Sadly, it doesn’t appear that he really went that fast or even finished 1/4 mile, but it’s still an awesome sight.

DIY Rocketeer Jetpack

DIY Rocketeer Jetpack

Prop maker David Guyton shares his favorite build yet: a steel replica of the Cirrus X-3 jetpack from The Rocketeer. It’s definitely not for beginners and takes a lot of time to build, but if you’re up to it keep an eye on his store for the free template.

Jetpack Skiing 2.0

Jetpack Skiing 2.0

Ski-cross world champion Filip Flisar amps up his speed across the powder with a little help from a jet-powered backpack. With the pack on, he can hit speeds north of 75 mph, though the temperatures on his back can reach over 1500°F.

JetPack!

JetPack!

There’s nothing ordinary about a guy flying a jetpack to begin with, but Team Supertramp took things to a whole new level with the eyepopping visuals, vibrant colors, and smooth motion in their clip of a pilot showing off one of JetPack Aviation’s awesome flying rigs.

Speeder Bike Water Battle

Speeder Bike Water Battle

For his latest video, Devin Supertramp replicated the classic speeder bike chase from Return of the Jedi – but instead of flying precariously between giant redwoods, they did the stunt on water, using specially modified Jetovator jetpacks. Duct tape ftw.
