Jetpack Man Flies Around Hotel Spire 565-Feet Up

jetpack-over-hotel.jpg

This is a video of GoFast jetpack pilot Nick Macomber flying around the spire of Denver's Four Seasons Hotel, some 565-feet (~172-meters) in the air. That looks like fun. I can only hope we're all traveling by jetpacks before I die. Sure they'll have to bury all powerlines to prevent a 600,000% increase in electrocutions, but that's a small price to pay for the freedom of jetpacking. Actually, screw it -- leave the power lines up. You smell that? "It smells like burning hair and barbeque." No -- it smells like freedom.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Russell, who would have done two laps around the spire even if it meant the possibility of running out of jetpack fuel because he's a REAL daredevil.

    From Better Off Ted -

    Phil: This jet pack project is going to be so exciting. Jet packs are the ultimate dream of every scientist. Skies teeming with ordinary citizens strapped to rockets.
    Lem: Flying through the air at 60 miles an hour in any direction... A lot of people are going to die.

    Wow, skip to 1:35 for something to actually happen.

    Unless you like watching two grown men play 'smell my finger' for a minute 30.

    I don't understand... Jet packs like that have been around for awhile. This tech doesn't appear to have advanced in years.

    I wouldn't want people being able to simply buy one of theses and fly around. Not only because of accidents but also because of people dropping stuff accidentally or intentionally. Some fucktard pissing while flying, another dropping his grocery shopping, another using it for vandalism and of course the drunk drivers doing everything I mentioned combined.

    i would fly majestically like a bird...and shit on people's cars.
    edit- (not indiscriminately like a bird, but if i decide they're dicks like a vigilante)
