A Manhattan Beach aerospace company has developed a prototype hoverbike that allows people to speed above the landscape like a Jedi.

The bike hovers thanks to two ducted rotors underneath it that spin in opposite directions, and is controlled in much the same way as a standard bike.

Two control bars at knee level allow the rider to lean to either side to control the bike's movements. It can reach a speed of 30 miles per hour and fly 15 feet above the ground,
