Reuters reports that the U.S. Department of Defense is to develop hoverbikes. At under $2,000 they’d be much more expendable than helicopters, yet theoretically quieter and less vulnerable to attack. Pretty good for desert missions, I’d imagine. Quite how long they’d fly for, with a beefy soldier on board and without some portable power breakthrough, is another matter.
