Jetson is hoping to bring a $92,000 personal flying vehicle to market.
A promotional video shows a small vehicle flying over a deserted landscape. The cockpit is stripped down and used to display flight information.
A future where we can strap into a flying motorcycle is upon us, and we are here for it.
The Jetson ONE makes that dream possible, according to co- founder Peter Ternstrom. It is just awesome. I love it.
The Jetson ONE.
The Jetson ONE is an ultra-light vehicle, which doesn't require a pilot's license, because it has a maximum speed of 63 mph.
The company says it will ship the first hover bike sometime next year.
If you have previous experience, we will let you buy one.
The customer who pays $92,000 for a hover bike will get to attend a two-day boot camp in Tuscany, Italy.
There is flight risk.
The company is hoping to increase the amount of flight time the battery can provide. It can fly up to 63 mph, but only because of software limits, and can reach heights of 1,500 feet above ground.
Is it safe? The Jetson ONE uses a LIDAR system to detect the distance to the ground and will slow down once it is close. If one of the three propellers fails, the company says it can fly using only three.
Ternstrom said the machine was made for fun. I want them to be responsible.
Would you feel safe if you sat in a drone?
