Jet Vest jetpack asks for your help on Kickstarter

This project takes “getting it off the ground” to a whole new stratosphere

Why aren’t there more jetpacks on Kickstarter? It’s a question we ask ourselves daily. So when the Jet Vest appeared with a US$30,000 goal our eyes lit up at its afterburners.

The project has been underway for eight months with seasoned jet engine building professionals at the helm. Now they’ve been grounded because of funding and have turned to Kickstarter for a boost.

Sadly the end result won’t get you a pack for yourself, only a sense of helping the scientific development of jetpacks. Although, if you can spare US$5000, it’ll get you a ride – but with a current four minute flight time (untethered) that’s a hell of a way burn cash fast.
