Bike taking off
A flying bike, like the one ridden by Luke Skywalker in "Return of the Jedi", could soon be a reality thanks to a Kiwi designer and his team. Chris Malloy, of Malloy Aeronautics has teamed with a defence firm to develop hoverbike technology for the US Department of Defence, the company announced yesterday. Malloy Aeronautics has an ongoing research and development contract with the US Army Research Laboratory to create a hoverbike, which will be used for tactical reconnaissance. Malloy Aeronautics has developed a smaller version of the hoverbike for retail that operates as a drone, but wanted to develop a model that can carry the weight of an adult.
