This homemade jetpack is being sold by some dude in Canada via a classified ad. How reputable!

OK, let's break this down. Pros: it's a jetpack, it's very somewhat affordable, it looks cool. Cons: it might explode on your back, it only allows for 2 jumps per hour, may toss you into the side of a building.

I'll be honest, I would have thought I'd be a solid "no" on this. But part of me (the dumber part) is tempted. [Used Victoria via Geekologie]

Update: Now the guy raised his price to $2500!

Update 2: Looks like it's fake. The picture is a prop from Minority Report. Lame, Canada.
