A group of Czech companies have developed a prototype flying electric bike that was able to hover in the air for several minutes with a dummy rider on its seat.

The 220-pound flying two-wheeler is outfitted with six battery-powered propellers–two in front, two in the back, and two at the sides. With the dummy rider onboard, it was able to successfully fly around for a few minutes inside an exhibition hall in Prague. Duratec, the Czech bicycle maker, is involved in the project.
