Aerofex in Manhattan Beach have created the dream bike of most star wars fans, the speeder! But rather than using anti-gravity devices and the such the speedier created by Aerofex uses massive fans to generate the lift for the bike.
The speeder has a control system to control the fans, which Aerofex says is easy enough for anyone to use, without any special training. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the speeder project and see it in action.
To steer the speeder the rider must lean and balance in a similar way to riding a bike explains Aerofex. De Roche of Aerfex explains “Since [the pilot’s] balancing movements are instinctive and constant, it plays out quite effortlessly to him.”
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet, as Aerofex are hoping to sell their innovative speeder to the military, but if any more information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.Filed Under: Concepts & Design, Design News, Top News
