So, New Zealand got to the 21st century before everyone else (well, two hours anyway), but now it's just rubbing the future in our face.
The Martin Aircraft Company out of Christchurch has announced it will produce the world's first "domestic" jetpack for only NZ$100,000 (AU$1.92 or so).
The Martin Jetpack consists of two carbon-fibre and Kevlar composite propellers, and has a flight time of 30 minutes and a top speed of 100km/h. The biggest boon is that it runs on unleaded petrol.
Jetpacks? Tick. Blonde bobs? Tick. Silver jumpsuits? Not in our lifetime.
