Hoverbikes have been a staple of sci-fi for decades. While a whole generation of kids have grown up dreaming about owning something like the Tron bike or Star Wars speeder bikes, they’ll soon be able to when The Beast Hoverbike hits the market.
Just a concept for now, this single-person vehicle is powered by a radial fan rather than traditional motor. This means that it’s closer in its operation to something like a hair dryer or graphic card than a motorcycle. A set of “wings” on the bottom will aid in steering while two large thrust reverse brakes serve to slow the bike down and bring it to a complete stop.
While you might be fantasizing about owning it, you might want to temper your expectations. The project did earn the prestigious second prize in the “A Roadtrip in 2116” contest, but it’s just a concept for now. Oh well, perhaps it’ll be constructed within the next 100 years? Hopefully.
