Dubai has been testing new hover bikes in the effort to upgrade its police force by adding them to the list of police issued vehicles, the Hoversurf Scorpions were recently unveiled at the Gitex Tech Conference.
The bikes are going to be used to allow officers on emergency response to get to location faster and easier by being granted the ability to go over the traffic and prevent being stuck in a backlog of traffic or being stuck behind slow movers. The 600 pound bikes can run at speeds of up to 43 miles per hour and allows the use of the bike for 25 minutes per charge while being able to fly autonomously for four miles.
The hover bikes are going to be mass produced for the Dubai Police after it was confirmed by the Hoversurf CEO on Facebook that they had agreed a deal. It is well known that Dubai have a love for technology and gadgets with the police using a range of high speed super cars and linking drones to them to aid in the fight against crime.
I speak for myself when I say I would like to work the emergency services in Dubai, do you think the tech is needed?
