Over time, our fascination for bikes has faded away and why not? There are trendsetting cars all over the market and we feel this alluring urge to buy them.
But, what next?
Well, the future is running (in fact flying!) high on technology. More so, do you remember the flying bikes in the epic space franchise, ‘Star Wars’?
You would be surprised to know that this sci-fi creation is not a fiction anymore. It is a reality. Yes, a Russian company ‘Hoversurf’ has designed a hoverbike, which basically travels through the air by changing altitude and direction.
Here are its mind-blowing features:
1. Hoverbike can go as fast as 60mph.
It has a four high-speed props mounted right at leg-amputation level.
2. Like a drone, it can be remotely controlled.
They have the vertical takeoff and hover advantages of a helicopter, but without the mechanical complexity and high maintenance requirements.
3. It’s the first fully-manned bike.
Hoversurf claims its hoverbike may be used for “extreme sports,” but with so much potential for personal transportation, it’s sure to be put to other uses if and when it evolves beyond the prototype phase.
