JB-10 Jetpack

Powered by turbines, the JB-10 jetpack can stay airborne for 10 minutes at a time, accelerate speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour, and reach altitudes of over 10,000 feet, without requiring any additional equipment. "It's like a Segway. If you want to go forward, you just lean forward. If you want to stop, you just lean back. It's incredibly simple. If you wanted to fly a helicopter, you'd need 150 hours of training - but with this, you can learn everything you need to know in about 3 hours," said JetPack Aviation founder David Mayman. One caveat: it'll set you back $250,000 when it goes on sale next year. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Pal-V Flying Car


PAL-V, a company based in the Netherlands, has officially launched its Liberty Sport and Liberty Pioneer flying vehicles, with pre-orders for the former starting at $399,000 USD. Both models are based around a custom Rotax engine that powers a dual-propulsion drivetrain. When put in drive mode, the vehicle's propeller folds into the back, while the rotors are tucked up top. Don't let its small size fool you, as it tops out at 100 miles per hour, and can switch from land to air in just 10-minutes. This isn't something you can fly from home since it requires at least 590-feet of space to lift off the ground, with a maximum flying altitude of 11,480 feet.

From a physics perspective, it's actually quite difficult to deliver a proportional amount of both chocolate and mint flavors with each sip. But that's exactly what we did. It's a marvel of fluid dynamics. Thanks Fibonacci sequence," said Seth Newburg, principal engineer and managing partner at NK Labs. Continue reading for a hands-on video and more information.
