Paravelo: World’s First Flying Bicycle
In addition to creating useful everyday products, Kickstarter inventors have also had a chance to test the waters with their wildest dreams – dreams like the Paravelo flying bicycle.
The designers at XploreAir have created the first ever flying bicycle, and now they are looking for your help to take this thing to production. An electric motor fires up the biofuel-powered fan, while the flexible wing controls the takeoff process. The bike can reach altitudes of 4,000 feet allowing users the ability to enjoy the great outdoors with a bird’s eye view. The vehicle can also reach speeds of 15 miles per hour on the ground, while achieving higher speeds of 25 miles per hour in the air. There is no need for a license to fly this bad boy, and with the ability to take off from virtually anywhere, riders will fully be able to appreciate the 3 hours of flight time. Support the project on Kickstarter, and see this thing in action below.
