Will jetpacks be everywhere soon?, Ep. 226

Culture
This is happening this week on Cnet [UNKNOWN]. Behold the 2016 Guinness World Record holder for longest two wheel bike in the world. Members of the Mijl Van Mares Werkploeg challenge themselves to somehow get into the Guinness Book of World Records. And they succeeded with 117.5 foot long bicycle. Held together with stage trusses. One person in the back of the bike pedals a giant tire while another guy steers the bike from the front. But don't ask them to make a turn. They were awarded a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for 2016. But an Australian team is Challenging the record for the 2017 Guinness Book of World Records with a 136 foot long bicycle that accommodates 20 peddlers. A team of designers and engineers from the University of Waterloo in Canada have built a 3-D printer that prints custom circuit boards. The voltera V-One circuit board 3D printer started as a successful kickstarter project It is now an award winning product, earning the 2015 James Dyson award in engineering and design. The V1 uses a mechanical head to print custom two layer circuit boards using conductive Insulating inks that are printed from a 2-D image file. The end goal for the B 1 is to help make prototyping electronics and circuit boards cheaper, easier, and faster for students and small businesses. The force is strong with YouTube user Colby Powell who posted a video of his nearly constructed 23 foot tall operational death star in Lafayette California. The Death Star's frame required 162 geohubs, 18 cans of paint, 2000 feet of half inch PVC conduit, and two T-10 gray parachutes to cover each hemisphere, making a total of 960 connections. The Death Star had to be lifted with a crane to be mounted on top of the house, and after adding some lighting, the Death Star shined in all its world destroying glory The top of Mr. Powell's home, just in time for Halloween and will most likely remain operational through Christmas. [MUSIC] Jet packs have long been a part of pop culture and we all wish we had one. [MUSIC] With the proliferation of drones filling our skies the past few years, it begs the question, is the next renaissance of flying vehicles going to be the jetpack? The CEO of Jetpack Aviation David Mayman thinks so. He took a flight across New York Harbor using one of his company's JV9 jetpacks. In a video released by the company recently, we can see Mayman buzzing around the Statue of Liberty in. Jetpack that seems almost effortless to fly. The JB-9 Jetpack can reach an altitude of 1,000 feet, fly at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour, and has a flight time of about ten minutes before needing to be refueled. According to Jetpack Aviated, the JB-9 Jetpack Is lightweight and can fit into the trunk of your car. The jetpack has been approved by the United States federal aviation administration and the coastguard but there is no word yet on a price or release date.
