Flying motorbike!

''Prototype hoverbike could soar to 3km altitude at 173mph ...

The current prototype doesn't have much in the way of safety features, but Malloy plans to add a pair of explosive parachutes to the frame, or just require the rider to wear a parachute, as well as covering the currently-exposed propellors with a mesh to stop limbs from being lopped off. Malloy also hopes to implement gyroscopic controls with onboard overrides to stop the craft from tipping over.

Happily you won't need a pilot's license to fly one, as the hoverbike is officially classified as an ultralight.
