If you’ve ever dreamed of levitating out of traffic when cycling to work, your dreams may soon come true.

Weighing in at 209 pounds, the prototype has two large battery-operated propellers on the front and back, and one smaller propeller on each side which is supposed to give steering control in addition to flight.
