    That's a Jetpack For Runners

    By Ben on Thu Sep 11 2014 |
    Gear | Tech
    This is a backpack jetpack for runner developed by Arizona State University. Called the 4MM because the ultimate goal is to propel a soldier fast enough to run a four-minute mile, the jetpack is being developed by Jason Kerestes with funding from DARPA. The prototype weighs in at eleven pounds which by itself isn't particularly heavy, but in addition to everything else a soldier has to carry it certainly adds up. So the hope is that overall there are still some speed gains when wearing it, and so far in testing it's been found to shave almost 20 seconds off a runner's one-mile dash.
