Hoverbike

The next big thing in tech is futuristic transportation, thanks to new products like Google’s driverless cars and Japan’s levitating trains. Now one company is taking it even further by developing a motorcycle that can fly.

The Hoverbike is part helicopter, part motorcycle, and its creator is hoping that it will change the way we think about travel and transportation. It’s powered by a motor and two propellers that will allow it to reach heights of over 9,800 feet. With a weight maximum of 265 pounds, it can be used both as a recreational vehicle, a delivery system, or as part of search and rescue efforts since it can go places traditional helicopters and motorbikes can’t.

The company also recently created a scaled version of the hybrid vehicle that’s available for purchase now. You can see the Hoverbike drone in action below:

    I think that the hover bike will level out traffic and help prevent the destruction of nature.

    This is awesome. I’m actually making plans for hovershoes so strong, you could go on water without sinking.

      That is a cool idea! You are so smart to think of that! Good luck, I will totally buy it!

    I think that this recreational hover bike could be the next technological discovery. This could be a huge breakthrough in transportation, but i have a few questions like will this new hover bike pollute the earths atmosphere? Will this hover bike be safe for pedestrians? And environmentally safe is it? I mean cars are all ready polluting the earths atmosphere and global warming is killing of the polar bears and endangering the safety of the animals and the ecosystems that they live in. This world is all ready in bad shape anyway .

    I would love it

    I would love to be able to ride this thing. How much would it cost?

    OK, I would go for this Hoverbike IF I knew it was completely safe. Just from what I’ve seen, it does not seem very safe if it were to malfunction and I was to drop like a rock. Maybe its because I am a little afraid of heights, but I am going to lean away from this NBT. 🙂

    I really don’t like it. We already have bad wrecks on motorcycles on the road already. Most die, some almost die. In the air if you run out of gas, or a malfunction happens, you could crash horribly. I wouldn’t ride it unless I was one foot off the ground. This is dangerous, and as much as people will probably want it, and some will buy it, I don’t think it is the Next Big Thing.

      i totally agree with you this bike could put lives at risk and the turnout could be disturbing.

    • Grace marie

      yea i agree with you poeple have horrible car crashes and motercycle crashes and etc. But i know i just know that that this would be a really fun oppertunity 🙂 <3
