Video: Dubai Police test rideable hoverbike
Dubai police are testing out futuristic hovering motorbikes which they hope will one day from part of its hi-tech patrol fleet.
The hoverbike concept, developed by Russian company Hoversurf, was unveiled at Dubai’s GITEX Technology Week.
The battery-powered flying bike will be used to respond to emergency situations.
When piloted, the hoverbike can fly for up to 25 minutes, reach a maximum speed of 70 kmph, carry up to 300kg and reach a height of five metres.
The hoverbike can also operate without a pilot, provided that the distance is no more than 6km.
