Hoverbikes Possible In the 21st Century

This has been the battle cry of science fiction aficionados disappointed by the current state of the 21st century. Well, what can we say? They’re working on it.

For the past few years one of the major players to watch in the flying care space has been Chris Malloy and his hoverbike project. Now Malloy has taken to Kickstarter to raise (successfully) some funds for the continuing development of his flying speeder.

This hoverbike was originally envisioned as a two-bladed speeder that drives like a motorcycle. But a lack of stability in that design has pushed Malloy to look to a squatter quadroter design, with two blades in front and two in back.
