Do you like to hover?
Do you like bikes?
Would you like to hover on a Hoverbike?
Yes, we’re back once again for another amazing Kickstarter Highlight!
What is it?
Well I think I’ve kinda led you down the garden path, cuffed you to the fence and ran away slightly reader: This isn’t an opportunity to go out there and buy yourself a fully functioning Hoverbike. Wait readers, where are you going!?
No, instead this is a Kickstarter Highlight that I wanted to show off purely for the ambition that’s there as well as the fact that the future is here, people! Yes, Hoverbike is already funded and I’m hoping that we get to see many of the full-sized ones flying around our skies eventually. I’m sure we will – and it was made in England! Fellow Brits, let’s feel proud about this fact.
The Hoverbike itself is there to be a kind of replacement to a helicopter. Smaller, lighter and easier to manoeuvre than a helicopter, the Hoverbike is looking to be the next step in air travel. The Kickstarter itself however isn’t there to sell the full-sized Hoverbikes; that’s going to be some time before that can even be funded properly. Instead, there are some 1/3 sized versions of the Hoverbike ready for sale.
Okay, you and I will likely not be able to afford these 1/3 sized Hoverbikes, but here’s the thing: It’s bloody cool and I just wanted to share this!
What do they need the money for?
The money will be going towards building sales for their 1/3 sized Hoverbikes which in turn will go towards funding the big-daddyo itself.
With the 1/3 sized ones, you’ll basically be buying into a remote controlled helicopter in bike form. So, if you’re really into your flying RC equipment then this might be the Kickstarter campaign for you! Of course, having just seen how cool they look along with how cool the rewards are, I think it’s fair to say this is a pretty sweet way to get into your RC flying mobiles hardcore.
What are the backer rewards?
Are you ready to see flying Hoverbikes around the place!? I certainly am.
How cool do you think this project is? If you had the money, would you get one of the RC drones? Speaking of Remote Control drones, have you ever had any experience with remote controlled vehicles? Until next time, this has been another Kickstarter Highlight!
