Jetpack Convention

Phil Torrone, the Maker of Makers reports on a gathering of jetpack aficionados, which can only be called a wet dream sort of Chuck Yeager and Jetson geeks everywhere. There were several working rocket belts in attendance, and I can say with no reservation that I would gladly cut off a pinky toe for the chance to jet-trip the light fantastic, powered by hydrogen peroxide, and child-like shrieking.
