Rocket Belt Sold On Internet: May Not Take Paypal

Jhayne just sent me this link — Rocket Belts of Tecnologia Aeroespacial Mexicana:

TAM is the only company in the world that produces a complete turn-key package of a flying rocket belt, custom-made to the pilot’s weight and body size.

Only USD $250,000, training included.

* Important: Be aware of people that offer plans, parts or a rocket belt that has not flown and tested because you will be killed.

  1. “…because you will be killed.”
    “Not by the belt, mind you; we’ll kill you.”
    I’ve got to say, though, that those contraptions look pretty cool.

  2. I had this dream where my Dad bought me a really cheap Chinese rocket belt he’d seen on a TV shopping channel.

    He insisted I use it to travel from upstate New York to eastern Long Island, to return a book to his former boss’s widow.

    Just kind of skimmed the tree tops most of the way, and nearly drowned in Jamaica Bay. Ended up landing in Queens and taking a bus the rest of the way.

    I suspect that this is closer to the reality of what rocket belt travel will be like than we care to admit.
