Awesome Hover Bike Prototype
August 23rd, 2012
It’s a single person hovercraft. Hovercraft have been around for years.
Wake me up when they creat a lightsaber or warp speed…..
It needs a 20mm Blast Cannon and phasable deflector screens.
But,its a start.
This is more like it!!
He didn’t build that!
I already saw where they said they don’t plan on making them avaiable for production, but instead want to arm them with cameras for drone recon, or for supply delivery.
Yeah I guess one of these on a still quiet day coming across the desert or in a mountain valley would go completely unnoticed by insurgants with a 50 cal.
“Look Mustafffa someones coming!”
“Probably just the mail man”
Looks uncontrollable to me.
I’ve wanted one of these for a long time. Maybe the technology will finally get there. Its nice to see this video in my lifetime, though. Go, boys! You can build it!

It’s just two ducted fans without a skirt like a hovercraft. Supposedly, the ducting takes the place of the skirt (somewhat). But it doesn’t look like the fans are moveable. Even just a small movement on two axes would give them a bit more control. Or have the front fan rotate back to front and the rear fan rotate left to right. And if they wanted to counteract the torque, why not have contra-rotating fans?
@hanoverfist: Much better–and they didn’t have to hype it with the crappy Star Wars theme.

Throw up too much dust. Give me a rocket pack so I can leave earth.

Rocket pack would be neat. But let’s test it on Biden first.
Always loved the jet pack since I was a kid but wondered what to do in case of malfunction or run out of fuel. Now they have this for a softer landing.
Crap…how do I post vid to play here?
