It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the police on hoverbikes! Police in Dubai test-drove hoverbikes. The flying motorcycles are made by Russian company Hoversurf. The hoverbike would let police monitor traffic and large areas and get to emergencies quickly. It seats one and can fly for 30-40 minutes. The bike can also send a live video feed. The Dubai police placed a 20-foot flying limit on the bike even though they think it could fly even higher in the future. They hope to start using hoverbikes in the next two years.
