Everything Else About the Future Is Terrible, so Here Are People Flying Jetpacks With Fighter Jets

Somewhere, in the distant past, as 10-year-olds, we all made a silent bargain with the Universe that what we really wanted from the future was simple: jetpacks. It tried to warn us that, in return, 2016 would be pretty much the worst year ever, but we all agreed: jetpacks, please and thank you. Well, we have our jetpacks. I hope it was worth it.

These winged editions aren’t even the only ones available. Jetpack aviation, who we’ve previously seen flying around the Statue of Liberty, have their own version coming to market early next year. Truly, the future is a remarkable place where humans can literally fly through the air while figuratively hitting rock bottom. Innovation!
