Alan, you might not have noticed I posted a lot about that under [TECH]

Seeing as you've already opened it with [EE]

=====================

(Almost [EE] but not quite)

Developed in New Zealand by Glenn Martin, public unveiling at
2008 Oshkosh Air Show

http://www.airventure.org/2008/news/080710_jetpack.html

More details are emerging about "The World's First Practical Jetpack"
that will make its public debut at EAA AirVenture on Tuesday, July 29

As people point out here, it's not a jetpack. Ducted fa, as in VTOL

As seen on NZ TV tonight (a longer item on Sunday), the machine
did actually lift the pilot and he flew across the lawn, steadied by two
helpers

Very similar to the ducted fan built by Mythbusters some time ago

Hi Alan,

As wonderful as this article may seem, it is a "newsy" item and a
perfect example of what [TECH] is for, not [EE].

Cheerful regards,

Bob
