Doug Vining Jet pack flies in New York

It's 2016, and we're still waiting for those jetpacks promised 50 years ago. But one of the prototypes has recently made a flight in public. The JB-9 jetpack has two jet engines and runs on liquid fuel, which means you get about five minutes of usable flight. Not enough to be a commercial success in my opinion, but it might get a cult following, involving a race series, which is planned.

I think the most likely successful 'jet pack' would be a larger vehicle or involve new technology like electric motors. How about a drone-pack? Could that be the future?
