Default Star Wars Speeder Bikes: The Real Deal?

Quote:
They may not be as slick as the Endor speeder bikes from Return of the Jedi, but Aerofex's hover vehicles could someday be zipping over our city streets.

These life-size aerial transport models were based on a two-duct rotor design that was abandoned in the 1960s due to stability and rollover problems. Recently, however, an engineering corporation called Aerofex was able to correct the stability issue by incorporating two knee-level control bars that allowed the user to rely on their natural sense of balance to steer them; such advances could eventually enable even untrained pilots to fly them.

Pretty cool Too bad we'll probably all be dead by the time they actually get to the public (unless they come up with a way to live forever before then )
