Totally impractical, even if I did win the lottery.

Have they built one? Or is that just CAD/CGI?

I'm not sure nbut it's a great throw back to some of the great Le Mans style racers of the 50's / 60's like the C-type jaguar etc.

I think I may be in love.....for the second time, after Mrs DD of course.....what was that, coming dear.......... :P

If it was real I would join you Syber, it's a well faked video that but there are a few give aways such as the car window exploding outwards when "charlene" shoots it in!!!!

If you look closely, the quad-rotor vanishes just before the explosion goes off inside the car. Still in all, it looks like a fun thing to have, even without the ordinance. :)

Also, there's a more tangible option:



And then, there's this!

I admit I realized this and knew it was fake, but did not notice

any how good eyes to the both of you  :thumbsup:

I always wanted to build a heli, since I was a young lad..and since quad copter concept came to my knowledge I been feeling a strong urge to build one...only thing holding me back is funds :(

as much as I would love to ride that Dave, I don't think I would want to own it.
now this on the other hand

I just simply love the concept of this thing.  :thumbsup: Totally impractical for every day use but what a show stopper. Over here, all those low down plastics wouldn't last two minutes on our roads, besides, you would need to check your wheels every time you stopped to ensure there wasn't a kid from the local Social Housing Estate jammed in there.  :LOL:
It WILL be fine !...

I'm not a rider but love the engineering of bikes in general. The light cycle looks a little ungainly to ride but what a cool looking machine. Love the wheels.
$2900-$4400 for 60-120 mile range step through bike. Seems competitive and the tech is getting there.

Like to know more about the batteries.

I'll take the engine for sure, but if that's the image of the boat to be: I think I'll pass.
