A pilot landing at LAX called air traffic control about a "guy in a jet pack." Probably the most interesting part about this whole thing is that, evidently, if you fly a jet pack within 300 meters of an airplane, they won't really do anything about it?

Zapata Racing just released the Flyboard, a water-powered jet pack available to the public. The Flyboard gets it propulsion from a jet ski idling nearby; its hose forces water to shoot out of the user's feet. Not as cool as a the real deal the public is waiting on, but I guess this is a happy medium for now.
