Jetpack Aviation announced last autumn that it is developing a jet-powered flying engine called the Speeder, which will soon be available to anyone willing to pay the expected high price for the vehicle. Although this commitment sounded more than optimistic at first, the company seems to be doing quite well with the development of the Speeder.
A Hollywood robotics expert and an ex-commander in the British Royal Navy have formed a company to develop a jetpack that anyone can easily use thanks to built-in automation.
At least that’s what DARPA wants, which wants a simple design. Known in the field of sci-fi, the concept of a jetpack, ie a mini-turbine that can be mounted on our back, has been occupying engineers for a long time, but so far we have not seen many reliable solutions that can be used in everyday life. We read about an interesting test recently, but now DARPA himself wants to see something like this, namely in the field of tactics.
