Justin Capra, a Romanian inventor who claimed to have invented the first functional jetpack, died on Monday at the age of 81. Capra used to say that he built his jetpack in 1956, well before Bell Aerosystems' 1961 untethered flights with their rocket belt. The only problem? He was never able to produce any credible…
Our favorite flying human Yves 'Jetman' Rossy is up to his old tricks again of making us all feel like tiny little life wasters. This time, he took a majestic flying tour around Mt. Fuji in his quad rocket-powered jetpack that can go as fast as 185mph. Just look at him zoom across the sky like Iron Man. So incredible.

The worst part about skiing? The agonizing wait to get from the bottom of the hill to the top. Which is why I'm so glad we're finally introducing jetpacks to the slopes! Specifically, the two engines from a decommissioned military UAV that Troy Hartman used to become a black diamond Rocketeer. Here, he hits 47mph on…
50-year-old Swiss adventurer Yves Rossy (known aliases: Fusionman and Jetman), was forced to abort his first attempt at a jetpack flight from Africa to Europe with a dive into the Mediterranean Sea. I guess the nicknames didn't come with superpowers.

We don't ask for much here at Gizmodo, but what we really, really want is a jetpack that costs $200.
