Real Deal: A working Star Wars flying speeder bike
Since the first time I`ve ever seen The Return of the Jedi I`ve always wanted one of those speeder bikes. This machine, developed by Aerofex in Manhattan Beach, California, the flying bike uses ducted fans and a custom control scheme that allows anyone to drive it without any training. The bike, which was demonstrated in the Mojave Desert, can go up to 30mph (48 km/h) and go as high as 15 feet (4.5 meters).
