Gizmag.com posted an update about the very cool Malloy Hoverbike. It was recently announced that it had met its goals for fund raising on the Kickstarter.com Web site and as of today it was above the 150% mark of it’s original goal. It’s not hard to see why there are so many “micro-investors” interested in this project.
The Kickstarter.com Web page gives some great details about this very cool invention:
The Star Wars fan in me wants to see this invention available immediately. And it seems like the level of interest on Kickstarter.com may have attracted additional investors so that may happen sooner than we think. All I can say is that it seems like the design has advanced significantly since it’s original design was unveiled in 2011. The two rotor design was thought to have an inability to recover from sharp turns. The quad design, advanced computer controls, autopilot and other features have already been added to the new design so it seems like a much safer product. Can’t wait to see it in action!
