This amazing bit of hover bike technology started off in the 1960's but was abandoned because of stability and rollover problems. Using some modern technology and thinking Areofex, a California company, has started tinkering and improving on this old hover bike.
But Aerofex does not plan to immediately develop and sell a manned version. Instead, the aerospace firm sees the aerial vehicle as a test platform for new unmanned drones — heavy-lift robotic workhorses that could use the same hover technology to work in agricultural fields, or swiftly deliver supplies to search-and-rescue teams in rough terrain.
Bummer! Video of this hover bike in action after the break.
