Okay, who wants a hovering bike? Everyone in the entire world should have their hand raised. Surely all of us have longed for the days of personal hovering technology since before the first Star Wars movie.
Just to let you know, this isn’t some concept vehicle that I often report on. This Aero-X by Aerofex (don’t get those mixed up) is real, and it could be around as soon as 2017. Yep, you can even put down $5,000 for it, or wait and buy it for $85,000.
This hoverbike can apparently reach speeds up to 44 miles per hour, and can float up to 12 feet off of the ground. It can hold up to two passengers, and doesn’t need any solid ground. I’m going to assume that it can go on water. Just to let you know, there is a computer that controls the gyroscopes and accelerometer so it doesn’t fly off the handle.
Now I don’t know if this will change transportation. Remember when we thought the Segway would change everything, and only certain people use them? Maybe the hoverbike will be the same way. I’m going to go back to this in 2018.
