“I’M NOT PLAYING WITH DEATH, I’M PLAYING WITH LIFE,” says French jetpacker Yves Rossy. Whatever he’s playing with, it’s completely awesome: Rossy and his partner, Vince Reffet, are the pilots of actual, honest-to-god jetpacks. The jetpacks, created by action sports company xDubai, are incredibly nimble and are super powerful.

Give the video a watch: Rossy and Reffet jump out of a helicopter or a plane, and then turn on the jetpacks and live out what is basically every human’s dream since the beginning of time. They fly across the desert and over the city of Dubai, including close flyby’s to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. The future is finally here. And the future is jetpacks.
