Jetpack protects law and order

The Jetpack has become more secure and lightweight, and has begun to comprise part of Special Services equipment. With its help, you can manoeuvre  in anurban environment and react quickly to emergency situations.

Christopher Garrard Not a chance by 2050, let alone by 2030. The energy density required for more than 5 minutes of use is far beyond anything we have in our sights, if jets are planned, and using rockets will always be limited by the amount of propellant you can carry. Unless we develop ultra-compact fusion reactors, this is far in the future.

Chad Hicks Jetpacks unlikely. Exo suits are far more of a realistic option. We are not talking call of duty advanced warfaire levels of exo suit. Though that game was not that far off on its prediction. Exo suits are being developed right now mostly in japan for work in labor intensive jobs. They are huge and clunky and more like the Loaders from Alien right now then the sleak almost cybernetics of Advanced warfare.

James Eck Oof, the gyroscope on this will need a lot of code. I believe it's possible today. Whether or not the military will have their hands on it by 2030 depends on the commercialization process speed. It's rare but could be useful in docking harbors where the police might need to move from boat to boat. This of course would be coupled with flying police cars/trucks. Flying trucks needed.

Ethan If we use these we can survive tsunamis earthquakes and other things instead of walking out and getting killed.

James Royle How long would the fuel/battery last? I do hope the authorities don't hog the technology and we can buy jet packs commercially (at least up to a certain thrust threshold). And if you're worried about security, well that's a whole not market of arboreal security that just started up!
