Gravity suits use jet turbines attached to the wearer’s arms and back. The company believes that it will be possible to allow inexperienced thrill seekers to test the jetpack in a training center just outside London, UK. Considering the ease with which Alex Wilson was able to quietly fly over the river, it shouldn’t be too long before this equipment becomes a staple in the panoply of fashionable accessories!
