Want to Join the Jet Set? Water-Powered Jetpack Propels Fliers up to 30ft into the Air… but it still Costs $230 a Go

For years their use has been limited to the rich and famous or wealthy James Bond enthusiasts.

But walking on water with a jetpack is now one step closer thanks to a device which uses water from the ocean to propel users across the waves.

The $94,000 Jetlev uses jet stream technology to propel fliers up to 30ft in the air by sucking up water in a huge hose from the ocean and blasting it back out of the pack.

The Jetlev R200 has a harness that straps the user into the jetpack’s frame, two handles for steering and stability, and a throttle for speed control. (Chris Parsons / Mail Online)

Getting closer: Using jetpacks used to be the hobby of the rich and famous only, but the price is starting to come down on using the amazing technology. (Chris Parsons / Mail Online)
