Back in February Waffles introduced us to the JetLev Flyer, a water-propelled personal jet pack that looks like a sci-fi escape vehicle in "Octop*ssy." After nine years of research and development, JetLev has officially unveiled the head-turning water gizmo with a snazzy new commercial. According to the company's website, this fancy contraption can reach altitudes of 10 meters, top speeds of 35 km/h, and boasts a cruising duration of two to three hours. It's the perfect boredom buster/conversation starter for anyone with a crap load of time on their hands and a spare $136,000 burning a hole in their pocket (read: the fabulously rich).
Besides acting like a douchey Aquaman during summer vacation trips to the beach, I can think of a few more pragamtic uses for the JetLev Flyer. For example, technology like this could be a huge asset to spear fishermen who have always dreamed of picking-off marine wildlife from the sky. You can now hunt sharks the same way Sarah Palin hunts wolves. Just crank this thing into overdrive and learn to operate it with one hand and, voila, it's like shooting fishing in a barrel. Or, better yet, when they finally get around to resuscitating the "Baywatch" franchise, it'd be nice to see David Hasselhoff chasing down drug smugglers and other menaces to society on one of these bad boys. Check out the JetLev Flyer in action below, via our friends at the High Definite.
