DoD Funding HoverBike Development

Growing up, I had a subscription to the magazine of the Boy Scouts called Boys’ Life. The only part of that magazine I have any recollection of was all the wacky ads in the back for things like x-ray glasses and hover machines built using vacuum cleaner parts. I wanted that hover craft so bad I could hardly stand it.

The first time I saw this HoverBike that we talked about way back in 2011, I thought of that hovercraft from my youth. I figured it would never be built and put into production, but that bet might have been wrong. Malloy Aeronautics, the designers of said HoverBike, have announced that the U.S. Department of Defense is helping to develop the hovering vehicle into a working product.

That means we are one-step closer to having HoverBikes of our own. There is no time frame on when the bike might actually be built or when civilians might see them. You can be that the first of these that are made will end up with the military.
