HOW THE JB-10 WORKS 
The JB-10 JetPack uses two minature jet engines fixed to a harness. 
The engines run on aviation fuel and can together lift 350lbs at a time. 
It can be controlled using two joysticks which control the lift and direction of the jetpack.
According to New Atlas, the devices are now on sale and expected to start shipping in April or May 2017.
The man behind the technology flew his personal prototype over London in October.
David Mayman, a former commercial pilot from Australia, worked with a team of engineers to build the one-person vertical take-off device.  
In a four minute flight he flew around 100 feet (30 metres) into the air above the River Thames in East London, zipping back and forth towards the ExCel conference centre.
Together with chief designer Nelson Tyler, he has launched a company called JetPack Aviation that is aiming to sell the jetpacks to the public, and is running a competition for people to have a chance to fly one themselves.
The company also claims to have an agreement to develop a special heavy lifting version for US Special Forces.
