If you want a working jet pack, your dreams may soon be fulfilled. The jet pack is expected to cost roughly $200,000, but you'll be able to fly with the only downside being a near certainty of crashing.

Engadget puts it best: "No matter how played flying cars, kayaks, and other strange contraptions are, the allure of a jet pack strapped onto your back just doesn't seem to lose its luster. Rick Herron, creator of Skywalker Jets, has devised a rocket pack that weighs about 90 pounds and can propel a 200 pound pilot around the air for what is likely the most invigorating 5 minutes of their life."
