Hoverbike prototype built by Australian designer
An Australian inventor has created a hover-bike which he claims could soon be capable of travelling at 170mph and 10,000ft.
Admittedly Chris Malloy's prototype has currently only hovered while tethered to the ground, but the designer is confident about his vehicle's potential.
He says the Kevlar reinforced carbon fiber hover bike will eventually steer like a traditional motorbike and outperform a two-blade aircraft in the air.
Suggested uses including aerial cattle mustering, search and rescue and aerial survey… we think he forgot to mention 'recreating scenes from Star Wars'.
