Finally! The XXIth century wouldn't be the same without them. We have to thank New Zealand for inventing them, and thanks to 30s radio serials, we know that the smaller Buck Rogers models won't be available for the next four hundred years. :D

Here's an article about the product: http://www.gizmag.com/first-commercially-available-jetpack/14423/

Also, here's a demonstration video indoors: http://www.thebigmoney.com/blogs/shifting-gears/2010/03/05/learn-fly-jetpack-yes-jetpack

The only bad thing about it is that it weights a ton, so you can't just walk with it on your back, and you don't want to leave it alone because people will want to steal it, as has happened before with some UFO and flying car homemade models.
