It is 2010, and you can finally buy your own jetpack. For a mere $86,000, if you put 10% down now and are willing to wait 12 months -- consider it yours. We can all whine, complain about the price, but admit it... if you had the loot, you would consider it - come one now-- it's a JETPACK!
The jetpack itself is 5 feet tall and 5.5 feet wide (so way bigger than me...) and made of a carbon fiber composite with a pinch of Kevlar for the rotor. It uses regular gasoline and will travel a grand distance of 31.5 miles at a maximum speed of 63 mph, which should comfortably take you from home to office (and back) in a jiffy, and with a lot of noise.
You'll still need to pass a training program before taking receipt of the jetpack, so you don't randomly crash into walls or dive into a gas station. Should such an unfortunate eventuality occur, a ballistic parachute system will (hopefully) lift you away from danger.
