The Jetpack - 3D printing has made the dream a reality!

Ok, be honest... Hands up if you ever dreamed of blasting up into the sky with the mere push of a button and nothing but a turbo booster on your back? "Thunderbirds are go" and all that!

3ders.org reported recently that Airwolf 3D and JetPack Aviation have teamed together to do just that. They have promised a light, compact JetPack that is capable of capable of flying more than 10,000 feet in altitude at speeds greater than 100 mph, with an endurance of around 10 minutes.

The use of 3D Printing in the manufacture of the JetPack tank, has allowed the progression of the Jetpack prototypes to be available far quicker and more cost effectively than previously, which has delighted the Team.

The JB-9 took it's first flight just before Christmas in New York, and we await the latest more powerful JB-10 due out any day. Now, we definitely think this is the stuff dreams are made of!!
