The 'Hover Bike' is Almost Ready for its Debut: VIDEO


Aerofex, a company in the business of hover technology, is in the process of designing a 'hover bike' which responds to the rider's own sense of balance: "So far, according to Blastr they've achieved flights of 30 mph hovering 15 feet above the ground. With a little more tuning, these bad boys could be available for market by 2014."

Who's going to be the first to bring one to Burning Man?

  1. Who would have thought that we'd get hover bikes BEFORE we got self-lacing Nikes and self-drying jackets?

  2. I wonder what the perceived benefits are. Can it fly on water?

  7. This kind of inventions belongs to the past. In times of man-triggered climate-change Earth cannot afford such a waste of energy just for pleasure. Or is it our the goal to transform our planet into a desert like the one in the video?

  9. It must be incredibly fuel hungry. I’m all for scientific research, but we are heading toward a predicted unavoidable cliff regarding fossil fuels depletion, climate change, pollution, overpopulation, etcetera –estimate 30 to 40 years to burst in full- and our priorities should be put in averting such crisis while we barely can. It’s not a rant, it’s a “tomorrow you will starve and today you are wasting time cooking an elaborate cake” thought. If you are curious, a pretty balanced, instructive (and relatively short) documentary here
