Jetlev unveiled an awesome new toy last week that made every Super Mario Sunshine dream come true. Unfortunately, they found it difficult to store an endless supply of water in a backpack, so there's just one major difference between the Jetlev Flyer and our favorite plumber's jetpack.
Unlike most traditional jetpacks, the Jetlev features two separate vehicles connected by a large hose: the jetpack itself and a miniature speedboat component packing a 250 horsepower motor and water pump. This miniature boat is connected to the jetpack by a 33 foot long hose that pumps water from the large body of water below at a whopping 1,900 Newton, which is enough power to lift up to 330 pounds.
Since the pack is tethered to the water via the hose, the Jetlev has a maximum altitude of 8.5 meters but is able to run for up to two hours at a speedy 35 miles per hour. As you can see from the video below, the Jetlev can be loads of fun and is probably a lot safer than a real jetpack.
The price of the Jetlev is at a steep $100,000 but is targeted at rental businesses which will allow you to play with the Jetlev at a fraction of the cost.
