I've got to get me one of those for Christmas.

When I saw this it just woke up the long dormant 10 year old in me who believed that he could fly just like Superman. Yves Rossy, a 43 year old Swiss pilot and general all round daredevil has created a James Bond style jet that can be strapped to your back. Here is a video of the guy roaring around a Swiss valley using his jet wing.

"Yves “FusionMan” Rossy, the first man to fly under a single jet-powered wing, completed his first official demonstration before the international press today at midday. Released from a plane at an altitude of 8,000 feet, he completed a circuit in just over 5 minutes which saw him fly over the Swiss Chablais and neighbouring mountains."
