There's a video. It's a quadcopter with a seat and controls.Last week's Gulf Information Technology Exposition (GITEX) showcased The Rise of the Machines, one machine rising above them all: a new hoverbike for the Dubai police force. Developed with Russian company Hoversurf using that company's recently released, battery-powered Scorpion-3 model as a base, the Dubai police version can hover up to an altitude-limited five meters (16 feet), travel at a speed-limited max of 70 kilometers per hour (43 miles per hour), and run for 25 minutes on a charge.
Those specifications won't frighten any criminals, especially not the street-racing kind known for hitting takeoff speeds on Dubai's long, straight highways. But the police force aims to deploy its latest toy as a first-responder vehicle in hard-to-reach places, such as the middle of a traffic jam. Conveyed to a staging point, the Scorpion's 660-pound cargo capacity could carry an officer to a choke-point scene with aid before a Mercedes G-wagen or Bugatti Veyron could get through. The hoverbike also does standard drone duty with a range of up to six kilometers. The video below shows a Dubai officer - in 26 pounds of motocross protective gear - performing maneuvers on the Scorpion in a parking lot while other, more traditional Dubai patrol vehicles standby in the background. . . .
