Hoverbike

Oh dear sweet spirit of adventure and lack of self preservation, let this thing be real.
I present the Hoverbike.

from the site:
Testing Progress:So far the hoverbike has completed the first stage engine and driveline tests. We have conducted a series of tethered flights, testing the sensitivity of the control surfaces - such as the ability to easily maintain a controlled hover, and maneuvering the vehicle within the hover.We are currently completing roll testing, and will remove the tethers next to allow basic testing of the control surfaces in simple test patterns in and out of ground effect.




WOW.  I'm gonna watch the site and find out more. Please let this be real. I'd walk around all day with a spring in my step just knowing there are people somewhere in the world riding this thing.
