Influential Australian designer Marc Newson was contacted by a French company that produces aerospace products. The company sought out Newson for help in developing a wearable jet pack that would let a person fly individually. Although airplanes, jets, and helicopters have been invented, a wearable device allowing independent flight has only existed in movies.

Newson is creating an autonomous body jet pack made of carbon fiber that will feature maneuverability, landing gear, and 45 minutes to an hour of airtime. Although not finalized, he intends to commercialize the device and make your childhood dreams of flying come true.
