Dubai Police Train On Real Hoverbikes
In a move straight out of Star Wars, the Dubai Police will soon have officers fighting crime aboard hoverbikes. Officers are already training on the 'eVTOL', or 'electric vertical take-off and landing' vehicles, which look like a kind of four-wheeler with propellers instead of wheels. Officials say the hoverbikes could be used to get into hard-to-reach areas and should be in operation by 2020. The bikes come from a California-based company called Hoversurf - and you can buy one yourself for the low, low price of $150,000.
