For those who have everything: The Jetlev R200

With the Jetlev R200, you can soar 28 feet in the air and hit 22 mph.

“It’s true. The jetpack has finally arrived.” The Jetlev R200, created by a Florida start-up, makes Jules Verne–style flight possible by using a pair of high-powered water jets to push the user aloft. The device doesn’t offer complete aerial freedom: It can be used only over open water, the pack is attached by hose to a floating pod that contains a loud engine, and the pod must be towed along behind. Flying the device also takes intense concentration. But once you get the knack, you can soar 28 feet in the air, hit 22 mph, and enjoy an incredible adrenaline surge. Jetpacks, it turns out, “really are as fun as we imagined.”
