Dubai police will soon have access to Star Wars-style flying motorbikes -- popularly known as hoverbikes. The announcement was made in collaboration with a Russian firm Hoversurf --which designed the craft -- at the Gulf Information Technology Exposition (GITEX) that took place last week. Launched under Hoversurf's pre-existing Scorpion platform, the fully-electric hoverbikes are termed as "human carrying drones" by the company. They will be able to transport police officers to accident spots and crime scenes avoiding traffic. The Scorpion-3 (S-3) hoverbikes are capable of flying at a height of five meters and can carry one person a time.
