Real Hoverbike is Here – level 3

23-02-2017 15:00

Russian engineers crafted a hoverbike which you can ride with all the ease of your standard dirt bike. The machine, dubbed the Scorpion-3, is capable of reaching speeds of up to 48 kilometres per hour and at an altitude of 10 metres.

The hoverbike can stay airborne for half an hour on one charge and it can be yours for around $150,000. There are even plans for it to be used for everyday purposes such as your daily commute.

Difficult words: hoverbike (a bike which hovers – can stay in the air), craft (make, create), dubbed (called), commute (the everyday journey to work or school or other places).
