Will 'Rocket Belt' fly at $250,000?

Price is appropriately stratospheric

We hope this isn't a hoax, because it's something we really want. Badly.

Everyone has fantasized about having a Jetsons-type jet pack, most likely while stuck in traffic. That supposedly can now become a reality, with a futuristic setup called the "Rocket Belt" from Mexico's Tecnologia Aeroespacial Mexicana that's built specifically for your personal dimensions.

"The service includes a fully tested custom rocket belt, a machine to help you make your own rocket fuel, hands-on training including 10 flights in your own rocket belt and expert support," Luxist reports. Wait a minute ... make our own fuel? This just got a lot more dubious.

Even so, we'd still be willing to give it a go were it not for the price: $250,000. For that, we could rent a private jet.
