You can’t fly your own jetpack over Dubai, but Yves Rossy sure can. This just-released video—shot by a chase plane—shows Rossy and an apprentice buzzing over Dubai’s wild urban geometry and hitting up the city’s (and the world’s) most magnificent tower, the Burj Dubai. We know these guys are experts, but a couple of the maneuvers are a little too close for our comfort. If you think you have the constitution, watch through to the end. It would be great if this technology were coming to mere mortals soon, but this high-stress video illustrates a undeniable fact: jetpack flight is for experts only.
The future is here (for some people).
