'Jetpacks' have always been a distant future technology for mankind and they were only to be seen in games & films where a character pilots a jetpack to move through. Now, it seems that the innovation has come true. The video of a pilot flying with a jetpack in the middle of the ocean has gone viral on the internet.

An eye-opening display by the UK marines garnered international attention last week across the technology industries. In a video released by tech-firm Gravity Industries, a jetpack operator is seen completing a boarding operation in the latest trial of the new technology. Through the use of a jetpack, the video shows a pilot lift-off from a moving boat to fly over the sea and reach the larger fleet.

The jetpack is known as the ‘Jet Suit’ developed by British firm Gravity Industries. Recording speeds of up to 80mph with a jet engine power of more than 1,000bhp, the jetpack can reportedly reach altitudes of 12,000 feet. Founder of Gravity Industries has trialled the jetpack with the UK military in the past. This clip has amazed the netizens and is being virally shared on social media.
