Hoverbike Delivery in coming weeks, will be in use by 2020

The move comes a year after the Dubai Police showed off a Hoversurf Scorpion hoverbike at Gitex Technology Week in Dubai. The hoverbikes are described as a “first responder unit used to access hard-to-reach areas,” CNN reported, citing Khalid Alrazooqi, general director of Dubai Police’s artificial intelligence department, who added that he hopes to have them in action by 2020.

Not everyone’s convinced these cool flying bikes can help Dubai Police do its job better. Many are concerned about efficiency, given that the bikes will only be able to fly up to 60 mph for 10 to 25 minutes with a pilot, but then require 120 minutes of charging time.
