I Almost Learned To Fly A Jetpack

Tom Scott

760 E megtekintés38

    Gravity Industries make jetpacks. They're not practical. They're not meant for mass use. But they are a lot of fun. They asked if I wanted to try flying one. Thanks to gravity.co/ - this is not sponsored but, obviously, they did give me a flight in a jetpack.

      The difference between this and car / boat / plane racing is, that those are very dynamic modes of traveling but this is very static mode. There is a reason, helicopter racing is not a thing

    8. Karol Kozik

      That's some really impressing networking on the part of both Pad 26 as well as Gravity. Congratulations to both you!

      Tom looks so happy this whole video

      I saw Tom Scott flying over my house.

    13. Men Guarding Their Own Wallets

      Imagine driving a motorcycle, where the front wheel of the bike is attached ONLY to your front arms? That would be crazy. Well, this jetpack is sort of like that = it's not going to be a success. Either put them all together in one spot (like a motorcycle is put all together in one package) or forget it.

      Tom Scott is just out there living his best life.

      @0:05; The Jet Pack Makers: "Okay, we made a Jet Pack, now we need someone to test it." "Not me." "Not me." "Not me either - but I know a guy."

    20. The Crab Maestro

      While we get to be quarantined Tom gets to fly. Thanks 2020.

    21. Sweep and Bleep

      Seems like hard work and another 20 years until this is actually fun and worth while

    22. Zenitsu Agatsama

      “We’ve got jet pack wanna try flying it?” “No” *video ends

      “I’m wearing five jet engines” is not a sentence I ever though I would hear in my lifetime.

    25. Aaron Knight

      Is it not really hard on the shoulders? How close to the exhaust before its harmful?

    26. Anchor Bait

      I love his development thought. I don't want more buttons and knobs and bigger computers. You are the flight computer. We're not putting you on a jet, we're giving you the tools and letting you learn your brain how to fly.

    27. Anchor Bait

      2:00 are you sure it's not 150hp equivalent? They said 1,050hp equivalent

      1. Brooks Moses

        At those fuel burn rates, 1,050hp equivalent sounds far more likely.

    28. James Bond

      Its a good thing they're not a microphone company.

    29. Ed Soniat

      Can you describe the physicality of the experience? That is to ask what sort of strength did you need, what was stressed, what might not be up to the job, how much fatigue was there?

      I can’t wait to see group tours of tourists navigating the city streets of Rome with jet packs.

    39. Indonesia

      I'm amazed that you don't cook your feet when you point the jet engines down your feet

      Thanos: I am inevitable. Tom: I am here, at Germany's smallest house

    41. Charmaine Eng

      now THAT is remarkable!

    42. Anthony Salzone

      The hell did you manage to get a jetpack

      1. doire aintu

        I hate to say it but, it's not like the 'rona is a thing is it.

    43. Velian Lodestone

      Kind of insane it takes 1500 horse power to lift up a person with a jet engine, but I am sure a single horse would be able to do that with a rope.

    44. doliio volay

      Is this the same guy who tried removing his fingertips with pineapples like 10 years ago??

    45. CaliBudds

      This looks terrible in reality. Just look at his shoulders. Youd be screaming in pain after an hour of use. Extremely degrading on the rotator cuff. As well as lower back issues due to literally no support and inevitable whiplash. Shows no forethought and reveals this is just someone wasting investors money on what any engineering student would equate to an over engineered toy.

      1. CaliBudds

        Damn. I got a notif about someoene tryna call me stupid because you cant run this for an hour. I see its deleted because even they realized they’re argument was hilarious. 1. It can be used more than once, just needs refilled. Same as arguing a car cant go more than a few hours. Just a simple refill. 2. If you cant fly it for any reasonable period of time, is there any practicality? Nope lmfao. I cant wait for people to look back on this 5 years from now and facepalm.

      2. UWaShock

        Why don't you try and make a jetpack

      How is Newton's universal law of gravity proved to be a universal law - meaning it is true in any and every part of this universe - without Newton himself travelling to all parts of universe to verify?

      why is his voice so soothing

    66. BeyondWrittenWords

      It's enermous energy to just fight against the gravity, every second. This energy contributes to global warming. So that's why flying is seldom a viable option for transportation

    67. IIBFDIfanII

      If tom dies before 2021. Im gonna scuicide

    68. Raging_Azzhole

      God im jealous, i really wish i could learn to fly. Very cool video.

    69. My Couch Smells Like Soda

      I don't know why I can't explain it But The whole thing felt like an episode of The Office (the good one) that was about to go terribly wrong. Great vid.

    70. Richard Smith

      It takes a lot of upper body strength. Like pushng your self off the ground with your arms and holding yourself off the ground.


      rained a lot yesterday in Seoul, Korea. The cold winter began with the cold wind blowing. ; I hope health is always with you. Thank you. ^O^
