Blast off with Sam Rogers [Podcast]

The Jetsons TV show many of us watched as kids gave us a glimpse at what the future might look like, though many felt it was an unrealistic view. Today, however, many of the things we thought were improbable are becoming more real than ever …

If you are not already aware, Sam Rogers and the other designers at Gravity have created a Jet Suit that travels 85 MPH.  It’s very impressive actually (video below).  Sam talks about what is feels like to strap on the Jet Suit for the first time.  He explains all the technology involved in creating the Jet Suit, including additive design, and how to quickly go through prototypes to perfect the design, which is difficult, especially when you are designing a disruptive new product.  Sam discusses the exciting beginnings of designing a Jet suit, and where the inspiration comes from, along with his keys for success.
