Remember the classic Disney movie "The Rocketeer?" The film about an everyday citizen that became a superhero of sorts when he stumbled upon a jetpack. Just about anyone who has seen that movie has walked away thinking just how awesome it would be to own a jetpack.

Well, that dream is now becoming a reality courtesy of the geniuses over at JetPack Aviation. Recently, the company's CEO David Mayman showed off the impressive capabilities of their JB-10 jetpack when he took a test flight in Monaco. The company boasts that the JB-10 is "the most technically advanced personal flying machine ever created.”

Swimmer Begins 6 Month Journey Across Pacific Ocean

Swimmer Begins 6 Month Journey Across Pacific Ocean

Imagine swimming for eight hours a day for six straight months. That's what 51-year-old Benoit Lecomte is planning to do, setting off on an epic journey from Chōshi, Japan to San Francisco, California. More than six years of preparations have lead to this moment. Finally really to start my swim across the Pacific Ocean. #theswim #benlecomtetheswim watch the live stream of my departure on @Seeker Facebook. @Discovery pic.twitter.com/TPJlz4tbEY — Ben Lecomte (@BenLecomteSwim) June 4, 2018 After each day's swim, Lecomte does get to recover on a nearby yacht, staffed with a support crew and researchers. The next day, he's dropped off at the same spot he stopped swimming the day before, according to CNN. Seeker breaks down Lecomte's physical and mental preparation for the expedition. The almost 6,000 mile swim takes him through the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch," or the swirling pile of trash in the ocean that's three times the size of France, according to CNN. Part of Lecomte's motivation for the swim is to raise awareness about plastic pollution. Thanks @leonardodicaprio for sharing my story. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to use my passion for swimming as a platform to raise awareness for such an important issue. @seeker @discoverychannel #theswim #BenLecomte pic.twitter.com/19L8zlNnIF — Ben Lecomte (@BenLecomteSwim) June 5, 2018 Lecomte has been training for this event for four years. In 1998, he was the first person to swim across the Atlantic Ocean without a kickboard. Track Lecomete's live progress every day here and get more information on The Longest Swim website. View Now

'USA MegaBots Team' Takes Aim At Its Own Defense Mech

Though the USA MegaBots Team we've been obsessively following and recently interviewed is still far away from its epic robot showdown with Japan, they've just entered our favorite development phase: weapons testing. But instead of wooden targets or helpless cars, they turn the $200K mech's weapons on itself! Prudently, the MegaBots opt for a test dummy in the cockpit before they fire up the meanest paintball gun we've seen (with 250Gs of impact force) and call in a concrete wrecking ball to pulverize their precious fighting machine in the name of science.
