Modern inventions for flying include this hovercraft that rides like a motorcycle.It’s like a Star Wars inspired Imperial Speeder Bike. The Aero-X hovers above the ground at a maximum altitude of 12 feet (3.6 m) and can reach airspeeds of 45 mph (72 kmh). It can carry two people to a maximum load of 310 lbs (140 kgs).Aero-X inventor Mark De Roche, an aerospace engineer and Chief Technology Officer for Aerofex Corporation who manufacture the Aero-X, wasn’t trying to create a Star Wars Imperial Speeder. He wanted to create a better all-terrain vehicle. The hover-bike provides search and rescue crews, emergency responders, border patrols, surveyors, farmers, ranchers and other users with an affordable vehicle that combines the benefits of all-terrain vehicles, aircraft and watercraft into one machine.
