Hoverbikes for American soldiers - level 2
British developers are working with Americans to create a prototype hoverbike for the Department of Defence.
Instead of a helicopter, people could use the hoverbike. The hoverbike is safer because it has guarded rotors. It is also less expensive to buy and run. Hoverbikes have sensors and an autopilot, so they can act like drones.
Now the American army will develop the hoverbike technology in Maryland. The army is planning to use hoverbikes in search-and-rescue operations, medical emergency situations and cargo transportation.
Difficult words: developer (a person who develops – creates something), rotor (the moving part), cargo (thing which are being transported).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
