The bicycle jetpack
This looks fab - what a shame Christmas has just gone as it'd be on my Santa wish-list...
A cyclist hits the road with the Thrustpac – a petrol-driven propeller which enables bicycle users to hit speeds of up to 130kph (80mph).
The device is controlled by a special glove which allows the rider to accelerate or slow down simply by flexing their index finger.
Inventor Don Burgess said it can do 240km (150 miles) to the gallon, making it one of the most-fuel efficient modes of transport. Except, you know, actually cycling.
