People can't operate a motor vehicle for in two dimensions. I can't fathom the number of accidents that would occur, should we add a third. Maybe if it was autopilot only.

It had a higher budget than Robocop and Terminator combined. You can easily tell that by the quality green screen you see in the video though.

Is basically a gigantic drone, not really a motorcycle. Seems like drone technology is the one that has really advanced a lot in a few years.

After looking at this one.... Wifey is going to be off at me for using the 4 ceiling fans in the house when I try to build one.
Seems simple enough.

Can you imagine, come the next flood or hurricane, performing water rescues with your home built dronecycle? You'd be the talk of the town!
