If true, this is a major advance in "jetpack" technology. The "jet" pack has been around a long time, but they were almost exclusively rocket-powered, and had a typical flight time of 20 seconds or so. Nearly 20 minutes is a 60-fold improvement.

^^Agreed^^
But $200'000 seems to be a bit steep for no more than it is... I think I'll wait a year or two to see if they don't drop the price... Give a little time to work all the bugs out before I jump in and buy one...
