An all-electric, carbon fibre, pilot-operated, twin joystick controlled quadrotor by San Jose design company Hoversurf.

Currently in development, the hover bike has a claimed 21km range, 2.5 hour charge time and a top speed of 64km/h. Qualifying as an ultralight, it doesn’t require a pilot’s licence to operate (in the US at least).

A $10,000 (€8,700) deposit guarantees first dibs on the initial production models, which will cost $150,000 (€130,500) each.

Keep your feet well tucked in, is all.
