NASA's Wicked Cool Take on the Classic Jetpack
NASA recently unveiled the ultimate sci-fi geek's transport dream: the Puffin, an electric vehicle that takes off like a helicopter and flies like a plane (at 140 mph). Did I mention "boost mode"? Hit that button, and this baby can speed up to nearly 300 mph.
Still a concept-in-progress, but NASA plans to finish a 1/3 sized demonstrator by March.
