It’s not Halo, but damn it’s cool! Landing on a Comet

    In March of 2004 a robotic spacecraft named Rosetta was launched by the European Space Agency to catch up with and land on a comet. It’s set to meet part one of that goal in less than one month. Rosetta is no stranger to exploration. Equipped with a variety of scientific imaging equipment, Rosetta has followed a 12 year flight-plan,…

PAX! 2014

  PAX is a veritable smorgasbord of gaming-related experiences, ranging from cosplay, to concerts, to consoles and pc’s, to tabletop gaming.

Yves Rossy (Jetman) flying in his jetpack invention

Yves Rossy (Jetman) flying in his jetpack invention

Yves Rossy is a Swiss inventor who flies through the air with the greatest of ease – – in a jetpack!

A backpack with carbon-fiber wings and four jet engines, Rossy’s jetpack is classified as an aircraft by The United States Federal Aviation Administration. Rossy launches off by jumping from a helicoptor or plane, and lands using a parachute, but once he’s in the air, he’s able to fly alongside other aircraft, explore landscapes and even do loop de loops.

Watch how graceful and fun Yves makes piloting his jetpack in the following videos. I haven’t used a jetpack since Halo:REACH, when I switched to bumper-jumper, but maybe someday I’ll get to fly in one irl. A girl can dream, can’t she?

The future is now…

Edit: Looks like there is a jetpack of another variety set to be available to the public “by the end of 2015”: The Martin Jetpack. This one operates more like what we see in video games. You can reserve a Martin with a minimum deposit of $5,000. The target price is around $150,000.
