Jane! Stop This Crazy Thing!


IT has taken a long time but elements of the Jetson's futuristic lifestyle are finally becoming real.

George's treadmill, which must have appeared ridiculous in 1962, is now an everyday reality.

Rosie the robot maid is not quite here yet, but the Japanese seem to be closing in.

And US company Moller International has put a flying saucer into production that looks remarkably like George's perspex topped transportation.
Test footage can be found here.

Unfortunately, it's not enough for Nick who says that as a comicbook reading kid he was promised a future in which we'd all have our own personal rocket pack.

He's still waiting.
