Even before the planes were invented, flying was every human's dream. Now that we have planes, we can go from place A to place B but we still miss out on that personal flying experience.

Well, the $100,000 Martin Aircraft jetpack is but one step closer to actual reality. Martin Aircraft's Jetpack is basically Flying around the sky with a huge, flame-spewing propulsion device perilously strapped to our backs. The personal jetpack carry enough fuel for a 30 minute flight or so It's powered by a water-cooled piston engine that blasts air downward to generate lift. Martin Aircraft has already tested the 250-pound, carbon fiber jetpack for a full seven-minute flight.

It's a ballistic parachute, which uses tiny explosives to launch the canopy up into the air. Check out the video below of JetPack in action
