Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer. Your chance to blast off like the Jetsons is only a click away. An auction currently on eBay offers the chance to test out a jetpack. Bids start at $30,000. You do need a driver's license. The winner gets at least six flights to infinity and beyond, though he'll only be allowed to go three or four feet off the ground.
