Most of the technology we use today has been on the market for decades. But that isn’t the case when it comes to jetpacks. For the past few decades, we have seen the concept of a jetpack become the stuff of science fiction. From the early movies like “Thunderbirds” to the more recent James Bond movie “Skyfall,” jetpacks have become a common theme. But are these jetpacks a reality yet? And if they are, what kind of applications might they be used for?
Maybe. Over the past few years, jet suits have been used as a tool for special ops and military personnel who would like to navigate underwater with ease and without the need for special equipment. The suit works by using a small jet engine that runs on compressed air; depending on the application, the air can be used to power treaded legs, thrusters, and other movement-related functions.
Jet suits are just what they sound like; suiting up in a pair of them would be far too impractical. Although the idea of being able to walk through the airport without being recognized has its appeal, it’s never going to happen. However, it is a great idea to think of a way to protect your identity while traveling, especially if you’re going to an area where you might be in danger.
The concept of a jet suit is nothing new, but the idea of putting an individual inside a human-sized, jet-powered suit has surfaced in recent years. Most recently, in the form of the Zephyr X1, a futuristic-looking suit that gives the wearer the ability to fly by harnessing the wind around them. In the future, jet suits will be the norm for our daily lives. They will give us the ability to fly into the sky and walk freely in the sea without getting hurt. We can even control our jet suits by using an app on our smartphones. One day, we would even be able to get rid of our cars and move from place to place in the sky. All this can happen in the 21st century.
The upside of wearing a jet-powered suit is that you can theoretically fly faster than sound. The downside is that you would emit thousands of times more heat than normal, which would burn up any organic material in the immediate vicinity. So while a jet-powered suit might work in theory, it’s a long way from being practical.
The jet suit of the future is a high-tech fashion statement that allows people to fly through the air. Invented by a Japanese designer, the concept of jet suits is based on a series of airbags that inflate when needed, then deflate when the wearer is safely on the ground. The concept has been in development for years but is now being marketed as a fashion piece and not a flying device.
Jet suits could be used in a wide range of applications, including search and rescue, disaster relief, and transportation. They’re also likely to be used in civilian and military operations, particularly those critical to national security. The ultimate goal is to enable humans to fly like the aliens in Independence Day, but right now, that’s not going to happen in our lifetimes. Jet suits are one of those concepts that seem like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, but with jet suits becoming a reality, you could one day be traveling in a Jetsonic jet suit, powered by jet engines in your own body.
In theory, jet suits are the way of the future. Currently, most people travel by vehicle — car, bus, train, bicycle or plane. But what if you could travel at hypersonic speeds without a plane or car? How would that change our society? Would it make anything safer? Would it raise the quality of life? Would it be any more environmentally friendly? And how many people would actually want to ride one of these things? The short of it? Yes, jet suits are a reality, and they are under development by some companies and universities. The long of it? No, jet suits are not a reality yet, as more research needs to be done.
