Flying Bicycle is real, takes first flight

You might be riding a flying bicycle soon. :p

Bringing us one step closer to the hover-boards and flying cars that mid-20th century pop culture had predicted we would have by the year 2000, three Czech companies have come together to develop a functional flying bicycle.

Designed by Technodat, Evektor, and Duratec, the flying bicycle weighs a little more than 187 lbs and limits its takeoff weight to about 350 lbs, according to a report from Polish bicycle news site Biketrendy. The report claims the bicycle, which is still just a prototype, is capable of staying in the air for about six minutes, although the companies working on the project hope to extend that to 50 minutes and top speeds of about 30 miles per hour. Currently, the fans propelling the bicycle are powered by a 50Ah battery.

Of course, a lot of work still needs to be done, which is obvious given that the developers weren't comfortable putting a human on the prototype for its test flight. But, still, it's one step closer.

They should develop Star Wars type motorcycle which Anakin Skywalker used in the movie Star Wars Episode II. Only then people will buy it in huge numbers.
