Water-Powered Jetpack Unveiled in London


At London Boat Show guests were able to witness a device that wowed everyone.

The water-powered jetpack, developed by engineers from Canada, can help its user fly at an altitude of 30 meters and reach a top speed of 22 miles per hour.

It was said that those wishing to own one of such devices should spent not less than 110,000 pounds (about $180,000).

It is worth mentioning that the Jetlev-Flyer makes use of a powerful engine that pumps water through a downward pointing tube, allowing the pilot to fly.

The presentation of the Jetlev-Flyer took place over the Thames River in East London.
