This hoverbike looks lethal!

The latest creation by russian company Hoversurf is cool and everything, but this can’t end well can it?

This is the Scorpion-3 from Russian drone manufacturer, Hoversurf. It’s a single-seat, electrically powered bike that hovers and looks as if it’s just moments away from causing a catastrophic injury of ‘that Nazi in the first Indian Jones movie’ proportions.

Hoversurf have said that they wanted to build an ‘extreme sports instrument’ based around the notion of a flying motorcycle, and they certainly nailed the ‘extreme’ part of that equation; nothing says danger more than having rotating blades inches away from your knees!

(If the truth be told, we’d probably still have a go if offered though).

    We can’t work out why they’d not put protection on it

    This design with ducted fans has an assymetrical fan orientation so it can still fly if you loose a fan http://www.hover-bike.com/

    Radioactive? Might be a great way to grow some new bodyparts and loose them right after. Not the best place to hover around
