Inventor builds incredible HoverBike that actually flies

Chris Smith

When he’s not busy designing thermite cannons or wearable weapons that involve throwing flames, Colin Furze comes up with all sorts of clever ideas – or takes inspiration from his YouTube fans. For his latest stunt, he created an amazing HoverBike that can actually lift a person off the ground and fly around.

Furze’s video are always intense and there’s no doubt about it, this creative man knows what he’s doing, even if he's not a trained engineer. We’ve seen many of his crazy contraptions in the past, and they always work. Sure, you might not find the HoverBike in a store anytime soon, and Furze’s concept needs plenty of polishing before becoming a commercial product. But the machine he’s made from scratch – okay, okay, some of the parts he purchased preassembled – is still impressive.

The HoverBike, as he calls it, has no steering wheel, no breaks and no seat. But it’s got two motors and two accelerators that should be enough to get it airborne. In the following videos, you can see Furze’s detailed account of the build process, including the final video where the actual flight takes place.

And yes, before you ask. There will be fireworks... just you wait and see.
