(CNN)Dubai Police, already home to Lamborghini patrol cars, self-driving robots and android officers, has decided to take to the skies in what could only be described as a flying motorbike.
After appearing at tech shows earlier this year, Dubai Police has chosen to add one to its list of cutting-edge gadgets, all part of the force’s “smart city” plans.
According to the Facebook page
of Hoversurf CEO
Alexander Atamanov, the company has signed a memorandum of understanding with Dubai Police and has been invited to start mass production of the vehicle in the Dubai area.
Unveiled at Dubai’s Gitex Technology series, the Scorpion was presented alongside a new electric motorbike concept by Japanese firm Mikasa — firmly rooted to the ground, but with a top speed of 124 miles according to the police
and looking like something from the film “Tron.”
