Posted July 8, 2010

Here's an interesting collection from Dark Roasted Blend about the history of jetpacks.  Like the flying car, the personal jetpack may be too good to be true.

    I'm waiting for the cars that fold up into a briefcase like in the Jetsons; no more problems finding a parking space!

    Heh, I grew up in Houston and remember that they hosted a couple of highly publicized jetpack flights in the early days of the Astrodome. I saw one of those.

    The very next article on "tailsitter" aircraft was pretty interesting too.
