Yves Rossy, Swiss engineer and pilot, recently debuted a video of his newest invention to YouTube: a fully functional jetpack! Accompanied by skydiver Vice Reffet, the duo are shown soaring through the skies of Dubai with the prototypes, turning and performing maneuvers with all the grace of a bird. The flight packs weigh 120 pounds, and allow their uses to fly freely for 15 minutes in speeds up to 186 miles per hour. While the packs are still heavily in development, and require assistance in order to perform take-off and landing procedures, Rossy’s invention is a hopeful sign of the next generation of flight technology to come!
