It's people like these guys that make some of the coolest leaps in technology. I hope his pack "takes off".

I wonder how much its costing him to build them and where he plans to manufacture the packs if there is a demand for them.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

i'd be nice for him to have some vid clips. So far i can say i've built a jet pack as well. If any idiot deposited $100,000 for a spot on the list, they need an ass whoopin.
