THE FUTURE IS HERE – SCORPIO 3 HOVERBIKE

Finally, we have some really nasty hovering bikes or hoverbikes already in motion. Scorpio 3 hoverbike has passed series of tests in order to be deployed as patrol vehicle of Dubai police forces. This model of hoverbike is made by Hoversurf, a Russian company specialised in production of human carrying drones. The latest in their line of flying or hovering bikes is already mentioned model which is able to lift and carry grown man up to 28.5 meters  in the air. At the moment operational hovering altitude would be approximately 6 meters with maximum speed of around 40 mph and for the period of 20 minutes. After that you will need to recharge the batteries.

So far, Scorpio 3 was mainly used as recreational vehicle, but, after the Dubai police test it is obvious that it could be used in more practical way. The test showed that Scorpio 3 could be used as unmanned drone or man driven vehicle.

One more good news for all you flying enthusiasts, there is a possibility to preorder this hoverbike and to personally enjoy its possibilities. Till then enjoy in video of Dubai police test bellow!!!



HENDO HOVERBOARD – HOVERBOARD WHICH HOVERS

Hello Marty McFly, are you ready for a ride? This is the question you could pop to Back To The Future hero for real because we finally have a hoverboard which really hovers. Hendo Hoverboard is a real hoverboard without wheels used by popular two-wheel self-balancing scooters (or populary called hoverboards despite the fact that they aren’t) and it hovers above the surface without friction.

How it works and where is the catch?

Hendo Hoverboard is designed and developed by Arx Pax and its co-founder and CEO Greg Henderson. Hendo uses Magnetic Field Architecture or MFA in order to maintain hoverboard above surface and enable it smooth ride. However, it can glide only above special copper surfaces. Copper surface is conductive and in collaboration with hover’s engine which creates magnetic field creates small closed loops of electricity called “eddy currents.” Eddy currents are creating secondary magnetic filed which is the image of the first magnetic field and those two magnetic fields are repelling each other enabling the Hendo Hoverboard to glide over the conductive surface.

HendoHoverboard2.0

The whole project started back in 2013 and it’s still in developing status with Hendo Hoverboard 2.0 as the latest edition of this project. Design of the Hendo 2.0 is helped by Tony Hawk. The 2.0 version now uses a real board as a deck, better battery life and has improved maneuver possibilities thus enabling the rider easier maneuvering and longer stay on the board.

Hendo Hoverboard vs similar products

There are similar projects on the run like Lexus Hoverboard and ArcaBoard. But, while Lexus uses straight linear and predefined tracks for gliding, Hendo uses wide copper surfaces giving the rider oportunity to choose which way to glide and freedom to make more complex figures and acrobatics. Also, ArcaBoard has box shape with lots of ventilators implemented inside the box so they could lift the rider and the box of the ground. Because of that ArcaBoard requests very powerful engines and lots of batteries. Hendo doesn’t need that because it uses magnetic fields and classical board look is achievable. Enjoy the video below showing Hendo Hoverboard.

$20K ARCA SPACE’S FLYING HOVERBOARD

ArcaBoard_flying

Marty McFly fans, this is not what you have expected but it is pretty close to flying board from Back To The Future movies. Arca Space’s flying board (ArcaBoard) or hoverboard prototype uses 36 battery-powered electric fans to produce 430 pounds of thrust and it can lift one grown person into the air. But, what is the price for this unique joy and experience of flying around. It has really heavy price tag of $20.000. And for this price you can have only 6 minutes of hovering delight (and this is if you are lighter than 80 kg) before recharging it. To recharge the batteries you will need exactly 6 hours or you can purchase ArcaDock that will charge the battery in just 35 minutes for an extra $4,500.

ArcaBoard

Arca Space’s hoverboard enables stabilization function when it is connected to the smartphone of the person who rides it. And unlike the Hendo and Lexus hoverboards it can glide over all types of surfaces. So, if you have $20K to spend this could be just the toy for you.

Watch the video below to see how it works.
