In BriefPro-golfer Bubba Watson has teamed up with the Martin Aircraft Company to unveil golf cart jetpacks. Ultimately, the work is meant to celebrate golf's return to the Olympics.
Jetpacks are pieces of science fiction that are quickly becoming science fact. Case in point, pro golfer Bubba Watson has partnered with a jetpack manufacturer, the Martin Aircraft Company, to debut the BW-Air, a golf cart jetpack.
Yes, a golf cart jetpack. Skeptical? See it in action in the video below:
This comes after a need to top 2013’s infamous hovercraft golf cart, and it is also a way to celebrate golf’s return to the Olympics.
The cart is powered by two large fans and a 210-horsepower engine capable of taking the craft up to 3,000 feet (nearly a kilometer) and propelling it at up to 46 mph (74 km/h). Like any golf cart, there is storage for a bag of clubs.
And it does not come cheap. Each one costs $200,000. Oh, and you only get to ride it if you get permission from the authorities.
