World’s first rideable hoverbike looks cool!
Hoversurf, the Russian company that builds drones, posted a video showing its latest prototype: the Scorpion-3, a single-seat, electric-powered hoverbike that looks cool as hell but probably won’t be ready for the X Games anytime soon.
“The electric-borne aircraft is intended for both amateur and professional navigators,” Hoversurf says. Though don’t expect a motorcycle’s license or even a pilot’s license to authorize you to ride one of these things.
So now that we’re seeing halfway decent hoverbike technology, the question is what’s next? Clearly an ecosystem of engineers and investors with their head in the clouds and money to spend is starting to emerge.
