Aeroflex builds hover vehicle like Star Wars bike
Instead of wheels, the hover vehicle employs a pair of ducted rotors. Two controls bars at the driver’s knee level allow the vehicle to respond to leaning movements and the driver’s natural balance (sort of similar to a Segway’s balancing and stability strategy).
You can see just how well the vehicle handles in the below video.
But bad news for all the neighborhood Star Wars wannabes out there: Reports state that Aerofex sees the vehicle as a test platform for new unmanned drones, not immediately for consumer use.
