Industrialist Anand Mahindra recently shared a video where one can be seen flying with the help of a Jetsuit and hoped such suits can be used in rescue operations in India.
Sharing the video, Anand requested the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) to explore options if such jetsuits can be used in critical rescue operations and emergencies to save lives.
"Another futuristic mobility machine which won’t soon be a mass commuting device but will have powerful niche applications. The Jetsuit could transform rescue ops. Would like to see it deployed by @NDRFHQ," he tweeted.
