When the spring of 2012 rolls around you will finally be able to purchase those jetpacks you have always wanted. I already pre-ordered 13 of them, because I can.

A Dania Beach, Fla., company called JetLev will begin shipping its water-powered JetLev R200 early next year, according to the company’s website. The suggested retail price: $99,500.

JetLev claims the R200 will propel you to a height of 30 feet (the hose is 33 feet long) at a top speed of 25 mph. As noted in the video, the pack is powered by a 200 hp engine that pumps water through a 10-meter hose at 1,000 gallons per minute, generating more than 420 lbs. of thrust. The company claims you can fly around in your jetpack for hours, thanks to a 22-gallon fuel capacity.

The item comes in red, black and white, and additional colors are available for an extra $3,500.
