Boeing will pay $ 2 million for creating the best džetpaka

The yard has long 2017-th year, and flying cars are just beginning to make their first tentative test flights. Instead of joining the race to create the best flying cars, an American company suddenly remembered that there is such a thing as a jetpack. On this occasion, she established a competition, the winner will be the one who will be able to create the most comfortable and effective prototype džetpaka. The prize Fund will be 2 000 000$.

The Event is somewhat reminiscent of the Google initiative to build a better lunar Rover called the Lunar X Prize. The participating teams will be given exactly two years to implement its project and bring it to a presentable appearance. Then developed jetpack will be demonstrated by the competent jury. The conditions of competition are very simple: the jetpack needs to move people at a distance of 20 miles (slightly more than 32 kilometers) without additional Pozarevac and intermediate landings. Boeing need a fairly compact jet pack, which is fairly quiet and suitable for movement in the urban environment.

The Prize Fund will be distributed as follows: ten teams will be selected after studying the proposed concepts of the future , will receive $ 20,000 to develop. Will be selected the best four prototype that will receive on completion of another $ 50,000. After the final flight, the winning team will receive a prize of $ 1,000,000. But there are also additional prizes. Including $ 100,000 for the most original concept, as well as two prizes of $ 250 000 for the "work of art in the field of aircraft" and "the Pacific.".
