(Almost [EE] but not quite)

Developed in New Zealand by Glenn Martin, public unveiling at

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
