The Jetpack is Here!

Exclusive PopSci footage of the Martin jetpack in action

Today, in Oshkosh Wisconsin, the future is being unveiled. We'll be bringing you live updates throughout the day, but first up is an exclusive interview with 16 year old Harrison Martin--pilot of the most promising jetpack yet unveiled--and footage of the pack in action. Yeah, it sounds like a vacuum, but it's a friggin jetpack!

Check back throughout the day for more comprehensive coverage, and be sure to thumb through staff photographer John B. Carnett's slideshow from Oshkosh, here. Onwards and upwards!
