Okay, so it’s not exactly a jetpack, but it’s still flight without the aid of a vehicle. In the below video, Yves Rossy is wearing a one-person flightsuit of his own design. Though Yves launches from a helicopter in flight, we wouldn’t be surprised if he’s working on a version that will allow him to ascend from the ground up. (Prior to racing other jets, Yves used to fly them for the Swiss Air Force.) Check out the video below via The Guardian.
