Neiman Marcus Unveils Jetpacks. Or, "A New Way For Rich Dad To Hurt Himself."
Our local institution of fashion innovation and gifting technology, Neiman Marcus, has released the 86th edition of its legendary Christmas Book. The shopping season kick-off catalog has morphed over time, growing larger and more extravagant each year. And now, it's offering a jetpack called the JETLEV R200.
No, Dad! No!
The JETLEV R200 attaches to its operator with a stylish, 30 pound harness which lifts him up to 32 feet in the air via hydropressure. The whole thing resembles a giant canister vacuum, where you, the elevated human being flung about, are the cleaning attachment. The engine can run for four hours and scoot around a distance of 80 miles before exhausting the tank's 22-gallon gasoline supply.
Want one? No problem. It sells for a $99,500 and comes with loads of accessory toys and a certification and training course, probably to keep this from happening.
Here's a video of the thing in action:
