Rocket Belt Sold On Internet: May Not Take Paypal

April 5th, 2007 | researchmaterial

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. I love the warnings to not be the test pilot of a cheap knockoff rocketbelt. Still I’d rather we all had inexpensive flying cars …

  2. “…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.

  3. If I were terminally ill, I’d get one. It can kill me coming down, as long as it takes me up intact.

  5. My birthday is coming up soon…

  6. well… its more of a harness than a belt…
    false advertising.

  7. hey, looks like training is included in the price…whouldn’t having watched all the James Bond movies be training enough?

  8. 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.

  9. no well dressed man should be without one…
