(CBS NEWS) – More and more, drones are being used in our everyday lives. Now, some companies are developing drone-based vehicles that could change the way we get around.
Police in Dubai are training on their newest ride, a drone-based vehicle called a Hoverbike. Joseph Segura-Conn is with Hoversurf, the company behind the flying bikes.
The company’s newest prototype is a handmade carbon fiber machine with toggles to control its direction and altitude. At 250 pounds, it’s capable of flying up to 15 feet high at speeds up to 60 miles per hour.
