Jet pack adventurers attempt air-speed world record

A jet pack is the ultimate form of transportation. A new world record attempt shows speeds on par with a very small automobile.

The adventurous guys at Jetpack International recently made an attempt on a world air-speed record. Pilot Eric Scott hit a maximum speed of 68 mph, verified by a police radar gun.

Jet packs seem like the next obvious stage in the evolution of transportation.
