The Dubai Police has a world-renowned fleet of supercars for promotional use, and now, the internet-reknowned power is dipping into the realm of science fiction with a hoverbike.
On the Gitex Know-how Week convention, the Dubai Police confirmed off its newest acquisition, a Hoversurf Scorpion hoverbike. Whereas there isn’t any actual definition of a hoverbike, this one is fairly shut, with a collection of small rotors offering carry whereas the operator rides it like a bike.
Personally, I feel it is much less of a hoverbike and extra of an extremely harmful helicopter, however that is a matter of semantics greater than something. No matter you name it, this… factor can deal with a 600-pound load and fly at speeds as much as 43 mph for a few half an hour at a time. It will probably additionally fly itself, due to course it might.
It is unclear how the Dubai Police plan to make use of the craft, however it seems that it will likely be put to precise use, fairly than simply being proven off for advertising and marketing functions.
Dubai basically is taking a really ahead strategy to burgeoning tech. The corporate welcomed its first robotic police officer in Could, and earlier this yr, it was reported that the EHang 184-person capability drone would begin making common flights within the metropolis.
I would wish to know what the advertising and marketing finances is for the Dubai Police.
