Courtesy of Reuters via Gallen, an international team of engineers just inked a deal with the US Department of Defense to build hoverbikes in Maryland. HOVERBIKES!

If I had to guess, it’s the lunatics mad scientists folks at DARPA who are working with Malloy Aeronautics to build these. From the article:

Blah blah blah blah HOVERBIKES! Blah blah safety blah blah cost. HOVERBIKES! Blah blah cheaper than a helicopter.

.

I was so overwhelmed by Simpsons jokes that I only just watched the video at the link, but I’m glad I did because HOLY SHIT IT’S A SPEEDER BIKE FROM RETURN OF THE JEDI.
