The future is coming…

The future I was told about as a child is finally arriving….

The concept of paramedics wearing jet packs is been tested in the Lake District in a collaboration between the Great North Air Ambulance Service and Gravity Industries.

 So rather than walk up a hill, taking thirty minutes to reach a patient, the paramedic wearing the jet suit can reach them in under ninety seconds. This could prove vital in delivering the necessary primary care to an injured walker, or those who have had a heart attack.

The paramedic doesn’t do an IronMan and fly up into the sky, they use the jet suit to hover a short distance above the ground and then use the jets on their arms to manoeuvre and direct them along.

You can start to imagine other applications of this technology…
