Hot on the heels of the Sky Whale, comes the Hoverbike, an invention by an Austrian Chris Malloy.
The pic pretty much says it all - yes his feet are not touching ground (and it doesn't look like he was jumping either). Its inventor believes the bike can travel up to traveling at speeds of up to 173mph at 10,000 feet. (or for those of us who live in the real world 278 km/h at a height of 3 kms). That height might be a bit of an issue for Air Traffic Control, I think
