Watch Dubai Police Service Test Its Newly Acquired Flying Motorbike



[dropcap]D[/dropcap]ubai Police has been one of the global security forces that have been utilizing the growing IoT and AI in enhancing their service delivery. The Dubai Police department is already known to be owning Lamborghini patrol cars, self-driving robots and android police officers.

Now the newly added asset is a flying motorbike.  Scorpion, as it is called was designed by Hoversurf, a tech company based in Russia, utilizes four high-powered propellers to stay airborne, with the rider crouched precariously close to the exposed blades. Capable of 40 mph and a travel time of 25 minutes, the single-seat craft, which can carry 600 lbs, can also operate autonomously.

After appearing at tech shows earlier this year, Dubai Police has decided to add one to its list of cutting-edge gadgets, all part of the force’s “smart city” plans.

According to the Facebook page of Hoversurf CEO Alexander Atamanov, the company has signed a memorandum of understanding with Dubai Police and has been invited to open mass production of the vehicle in the Dubai area.

Unveiled at Dubai’s Gitex Technology show, the Scorpion was presented alongside a new electric motorbike concept by Japanese firm Mikasa — firmly rooted to the ground, but with a top speed of 124 mph according to the police and looking like something out of the film “Tron.”
