Martin jetpack hits the marketplace!

Filed under: Business, Science, Technology — Tags: , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 12:49 am

I first blogged about the Martin jetpack back in July 2008, and here not two years later the thing is available for sale — at a mere $75,000. No longer can you cry out, “It’s the twenty-first century and where is my jetpack?!”

From the second link (be sure and hit the link for a video of the jetpack in action):

Taking a leap into the future, the New Zealand-based Martin Aircraft Company plans to start selling commercial jetpacks to anyone with an interest and $75,000.

As a recent article in The Telegraph has reported, Martin has partnered with an unnamed international aircraft company, resulting in enough capital to produce 500 jetpacks per year. The partnership has brought the jetpacks closer to reality compared with a year ago, when Martin’s goal was to produce 10 units at $100,000 each.
