Aerofex Has Created a Star Wars Speeder Bike in Real Life (Sorta)

Aerofex has taken the Star Wars speeder bike concept and made it a reality with their hover bike concept.  You will see in the video below that this vehicle is straight out of a Sci-Fi movie, and when you see it hovering through a desert you’ll instantly be reminded of Tatooine and its various floating transports.  Unfortunately, Aerofex isn’t planning any commercial versions of their hover bike at this time.  Boo!  Although, based on the video below I’d say that one day the human race may very well be chased by walking bear midgets that can talk and ride hover bikes.  You’ve been warned!

In all seriousness though you should check out the clip below of this thing in action.  There may not be any plans to bring this tech to the masses, but the video definitely reinforces the fact that in the near future we may not always have to rely on streets and cars to get around.  You’ve been wanting to swing a lightsaber at one of these hover bikes like Luke did in a galaxy far, far away…
