The Jetlev R200 water jetpack makes you fly on water

The Jetlev R200 water jetpack is a totally cool gadget that allows one to experience flying without having to worry about plane-sickness. It uses a water-propulsion system for lift-off and will be available starting 2012, for a price of $100,000 each. The base principle of this machine’s modus operandi is Newton’s third law: “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”.

Thus, an engine and a pump suck water through the 33-foot long water hose and let it out through two nozzles with such a powerful force that the user is propelled more than 10 meters up. It has totally different operational means than the air-based Thunderpack or Martin Jetpack, but the same principle.

The technical details of the machine acknowledge us that a 200 HP engine, accompanied by a pump, suck up 1,000 gallons of water per minute, in order to generate 420 lbs of thrust, which are compulsory to launch a normal-sized human being upwards with around 40 km/h (25 mph).

Though the propulsion system can easily boost an ordinary car on the ground, the world of personal jet-flying is undergoing development. It’s yet unknown the exact date since any of these can be acquired, but considering the price, we surely wish that it’s a long time past the holidays and New Year’s.
