While Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) recently announced that it will be adding 200 driverless flying cars to the streets of Dubai by July, a Russian company has unveiled a flying bike.
Hoversurf, the Russian-based company unveiled their latest product called the Scorpio-3. It is a hovering machine that combines the features of a quadcopter drone with a bike.  It is a single-seat, electric-powered hoverbike that is intended to be an extreme sports instrument.

The company Hoversurf says, Scorpio - 3 is the world's first electric hoverbike that's intended to be "an extreme sports instrument" for both "amateur and professional navigators", according to a report in The Verge
The hoverbike's range and velocity are limited as it is said to run on custom-made software. Hoversurf says that the Scorpio-3's design was "inspired by heavy-duty sport-utility motorbike frames that basically surfs through the air by changing altitude and direction".
