For the Eccentric Billionaire in You

If you are an eccentric billionaire, this may be right up your alley:




Of course, there is certainly an issue with the sound the thing creates. It's irritating just watching the video. I couldn't imagine what it would be like flying it, so I am sure ear muffs would be needed at all times. Plus, I understand from the related videos that the inventor is having a hard time getting it to fly any higher than 6 feet off the ground. That limitation could be a big damper on the whole project. I mean, if you are an eccentric billionaire, you need a reliable, high flying jet pack that allows you to get quickly across your island compound to the miniature zoo. By miniature zoo, I don't mean a small zoo, but you know, a zoo with genetically engineered miniature animals. Like giraffes one third their normal size and elephants as big as Great Danes.

Of course, I pictured them being a little smaller.
