DailyDirt: Flying Bikes

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Riding a bicycle is a great way to stay fit and healthy, while also helping the environment. For those who feel they need a little assistance on the ground, there are electric bicycles. And then, for those who want to soar above traffic, avoiding congestion, exhaust fumes, and bad drivers, there are flying bicycles. Here are a few examples of some of the latest (totally not dangerous-looking) flying bike prototypes. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    Flying bikes and cars seem like a good idea until you neighbor joins you in bed by falling through your roof.

    The human powered helicopter is a nice idea, but the thing is like 300 feet across and none of them seem to be able to get more than 8 feet off the ground.
