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

Although the bike isn’t quite ready to carry a human on board, it has already been tested by remote control and it can fly for five minutes straight.
The helicopter bike prototype may look a little like the rider is transporting two wind turbines, but those cage-protected propellers create enough power to lift the bike vertically into flight. 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.
