Man builds working hoverbike using two huge fans
A man has built a working, terrifying hoverbike.
The invention uses two huge fans mounted on the front and back of a steel frame to take off into the air.
It been shown in a YouTube video that got millions of views, as people marvel at the fact that the strange contraption can actually take off.
“What a creation, it’s a unhinged flying bike/human blender but unbelievably it gets off the ground and actually FLIES,” writes Colin Furze in the video description.
Mr Furze, who doesn’t have any engineering qualifications, has previously made working Wolverine claws and shoes that walk on the ceiling.
The hoverbike isn’t perfect. It lacks a seat, a proper steering wheel and a braking system.
And it also appears to be always very close to hacking off the legs of the person riding it. Since it’s powered by two huge fans that are largely uncovered, sitting the wrong way or moving to the wrong position looks like it could lead to severe damage to its rider.
