    that's some old technology already, but that's pretty cool if they'll become commercially available.

    Hrm...between the commercial Jetpacks and the Robot Walker traffic should be getting easier in the foreseeable furture. Okay...so now we just need gauss rifles. Anyone got any gauss rifles yet? Verg, if you are out there I KNOW you have one in your basement.

Well, you know how you feel when you wait for an MMO to come out and when it does you feel like you've paid to play it's beta test for another 6-9 months before anything even thinks of working the way it should? Being a network engineer you feel that way about anything Microsoft puts out."

    That is not worth 200grand. Trust me guys. I made a lot of things from mega man games and it's pretty damn simple. I made a hovercraft using 4 vacume cleaners, a car battery and plastic. It's easy stuff.

    I'm pretty sure that'll just kill you from indirrect heat. >.> It could just be me though that thinks this.

    Siehst du mich
    Erkennst du mich
    Ganz tief in meinem Herz
    ist noch ein Platz f?r dich
    Ich suche dich
    Ich sehne mich
    nach dem was ich geliebt hab
    doch ich find es nicht

    Looks like it would heat the air around the person but I dont know about killing heat...
    Just from looking at the apparatus I can tell a couple things... Firstly The thrusters are juxtapostioned (I always wanted to say that) away from center mass ... Secondly The system is a whopping 8 thrusters... That being said... With 8 thrusters instead of two You would have 8 very small outputs of heat Flowing away from the body... as opposed to the Two very large heat outputs travelling along the body...  And just changing the power of the individual thrusters could changed direction, position and speed...

    In otherwords.. Instead of having One Huge bonfire to light the room... You have a bunch of smaller torches... which will inturn be more controllable and not need to expend as much heat... ... Atleast thats how i figure it.

    Yeah, didn't they have a real one in an old James Bond movie? (Can't remember which one)

    I know it was real because there was a show on the history channel about how it got sold and how the guy used it (for the 2 minutes or so before it runs out of fuel).
