The Guardian looks at new personal hoverbikes that have drawn interest from the U.S. military.  

“The hoverbike, remote-controlled versions of which are already flying, is heavily based on drone technology, powered by four bladed fans in protective casings. The design is intended to provide stability, speed and, the company hopes, the same range as a small helicopter.”  

“The company is to set up a base in Maryland so it can develop the hoverbike closer to the US military, and it is working on the design with the US firm Survice… As yet, the creation, officially called the Hoverbike Helicopter, does not have a price or a target date for the first deliveries.”
