Dubai Police Take Delivery Of First Electric Hoverbikes


Just over a year ago, Hoversurf was displaying a quadcopter-like flying motorcycle that most people dismissed as vaporware, but Thursday CNN reported the first units were being used for training by the Dubai police department. The production version of the Hoverbike S3 is mostly carbon fiber, weighs 253lbs, has a top speed of 60 mph, and can remain aloft for nearly 30 minutes on a charge. The good news is that you too can cruise or commute 16 feet above traffic, park and take off from a normal parking spot, and the FAA has said you don't need a pilot's license. You will however need $150,000 burning a hole in your pocket.
