Bike That Can Fly!

Two British designers have unveiled a flying bicycle that can reach altitudes of up to 4,000 feet and doesn’t require a pilot’s license! Yannick Read and John Foden claim their XploreAir X1 is the world’s first flying bike and that it could revolutionize the way we travel for work, leisure and adventure.

It takes off from any open space and once airborne it flies at 25mph for up to three hours at a time, powered by a biofuel motor and parachute. The design boasts a folding bicycle and powerful fan that can be towed by a lightweight trailer and is light enough to be carried by one person.

 

Following a series of successful test flights to establish the safety and reliability of the design, the XploreAir X1 has been placed on crowd-funding website Kickstarter. If it draws enough support from the public, it will go into full production and later go on sale for less around $23,000. (Ananova)
