Watch A Real-Life Rocketeer Fly Around Mt. Fuji At 185 Mph On A Homemade Jetpack

Still waiting for this world of the future of ours to give you your jetpack? Well, a Jetsons-like future may never happen, because everyone zipping around in jetpacks would be chaos, but if you know a thing or two about engineering, functional jetpacks are possible right damn now.

Take, for example, Yves “Jetman” Rossy, a Swiss pilot who created his own jetpack-like device, which he used to fly around Mt. Fuji at 185 mph. Video proof below…

Man, if I didn’t know that video was real, I’d say it’s effects were terrible. He looks like he’s in front of a green screen, except he’s not. We’re officially living in 1950s drive-in movie people.
