Not a jet, not yet commercialised and I believe it's an old video. At least I've seen one much like it before.

That thing's enormous. To me that's starting to leave jetpack territory and entering helicopter where you're strapped to the outside territory.

This looks more like a ducted fan than a jet, but I like!

@ Gerry1of1: I don't see any cup holders. I hope I can buy one with cup holders.

I don't think the helmet would hurt.

I don't think that helmet would save you.

It may be able to fly a mile high and at 62 miles per hour, but only for 1/2 hour. Not very efficient. Its basically a concept design. They can't add a bigger tank to it because then it would be too heavy.

Fuel Capacity 5 US gallons (18.9 litres)
Fuel burn 10 US gallons (38 litres)/hr

@ajd121: maybe not. The only way to make it smaller is to increase the efficiency of the blades and the motor without increasing their mass, just like a helicopter.

Considering the helicopter's overall design has not changed for at least 20 years I don't think this one's will.

A little on the large side now, but just like with cell phones they will get smaller and better.
