Water-Powered Jet Pack

at 5:42 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Insane Equipment, What Were They Thinking

 

All I can say is WOW. Not much information seems to be available but it looks like the Water-Powered Jet Pack is tethered with water hoses to a tow-behind water pump. I would assume that the water pump would be a jet pump running on gas which could mean that you could have hours of fun flying around the lake.

Via; Dvice

"A new design for jet packs uses a system of conduits to push water from an engine below the surface of a lake through thrust nozzles on the pack."

    Hi Capdiamont,

    Give it a try again, it seems to work fine on my end. It’s a Flash player so you may have to update your player version.

    I bet his max altitude is limited not just by the length of the hose, but by the weight of the hose since it’s filled with water – longer hose wouldn’t necessarily mean more altitude.

    Cool! I wonder what it would do if he dove underwater with it.

    Thats a awesome idea, i bet this is a lot of fun to fly.
