Star Wars tech to help Dubai Police fight crime!
The Dubai Police Department gets Star Wars-inspired hoverbikes to go with their impressive collection of supercars to help them fight crime.
The Dubai police force, not content with outfitting its officers with the latest sports cars to help them fight crime, have now provided their crime fighters with the latest in technology in the form of hoverbikes.
The Dubai Police Department has a collection of Lamborghinis, Bugattis, Ferraris and Mercedes-AMGs that they use to fight crime but now, thanks to company Hoversurf, they have been equipped with hoverbikes painted in their colours.
The bikes are inspired by a certain branch of Stormtroopers from Star Wars.
The special one-person bike can fly up to six-metres in the air, at speeds up to 65km/h. It can also operate for about 20 minutes on a single battery charge.
According to Hoversurf, the bike has set new world records for flight height at 28.5 metres and climbing rate at 5m/s.
It can be seen on display at the Gitex technology exhibition.
