If you thought a single speed was the coolest way to get around. Think again. It’s not even the most dangerous. Instead both crowns go to the Hoverbike. It’s estimated to reach an airspeed of around 150 KIAS, which although we have no idea what that means in mph, sure sounds fast, and certainly you’ll be wearing a crash helmet on this thing. The flat, twin 4-stroke engines pack 1170cc, so the Hoverbike could certainly never be considered a slouch. Oh, and it can reach altitudes of 10,000 feet+. The production model is coming soon, but if you’re really impatient, you can buy a working prototype today. Probably better get some life insurance packaged in with that too.

FAN THE FIRE is a digital magazine about lifestyle and creative culture. Launching back in 2005 as a digital publication about Sony’s PSP handheld games console, we’ve grown and evolved now covering the arts and lifestyle, architecture, design and travel.
