Jetpackin' Around Mount Fuji

It's 2013. Where's my jet pack? Oh yeah, that's right, Yves Rossy has it.

Rossy, a Swiss fighter pilot who went on to build an actual jetpack is aptly known by his nickname "Jetman." His latest flight was around Mount Fuji in Japan. "You feel that you have pressure everywhere, and that's the magic moment. Because full thrust like that, you are aerodynamic and it's like a big hand on your back and yes! It holds. And you fly," Rossy said to ITN News.

Rossy's jetpack flew a total of 9 times around Mount Fuji, with an average speed of 200 km per hour (124 mph).
