Jetpack travel is just around the corner, or so says Glenn Martin from New Zealand.

Martin is getting a lot of press for a flight that lasted a few seconds and only got him a few feet off the ground.

He needs to get PR lessons from Virgin Galactic. When Sir Richard Branson rolls out a spacecraft launcher, it actually works. Glenn has sold some of his craft for $100,000. Notice the “training wheels.”
