Scary homemade jetpack April 23, 2007

Posted by Al in : bizarre,invention , trackback

I don’t know whether to praise the inventor and creator of this homemade jetpack, or to point out that he’s building something very scary and dangerous. With the old rocket powered systems you only had to be scared of losing control or the thing blowing you to pieces. With this system you’re going to have a gas turbine, a homemade gas turbine at that, spinning at 65,000rpm right by your head. So not only might you crash, or explode, you might also be finely shredded if the blades of that turbine let go. I’m going to call Andreas brave – and crazy. Although it looks fabulously steampunk, I don’t think I’ll be giving it a go.
