The makers of the world's first hoverbike have revealed plans for a self flying air taxi that seats five.
Hoversurf, whose hoverbikes are used by police in Dubai, is launching a new product known as 'The Formula Project'.
It uses fold-away wings and 52 tiny turbine Venturi propulsion units - and its makers say experience is not necessary to navigate the skies.

The new product is called an ATAAS (Air Transport As A Service), and it features a computer, a security system and a drone signal.
It monitors all ground and flying vehicles.
ATAASs can take off from and land in a parking space, and they also feature a digital map of the city and GPS.
They can be fueled at an electric charging station or a regular gas station with a hybrid power plant FPE.

Hoversurf announced that the drone taxis, which they call the 'transport of the future', will be available as early as next year, and they said the taxis are safer than ground transportation.
 

Hoversurf is also responsible for the Scorpion-3, the single-seat aircraft capable of lifting a person in the sky with full passenger control.
The Scorpion-3 merges a standard motorbike design with drone quad-copter technology to allow riders to maneuver in the air as if they were riding a bike.

Creators say the Scorpion-3 can carry 266 pounds in weight while hitting 30 miles an hour and reaching 33 feet.
It can stay airborne for up to 27 minutes.
The quad-copter is available for a whopping $150,000.

 An inbuilt safety mechanism limits the maximum speed and altitude of the aircraft in order to prevent accidents.
Hoversurf creators want to provide flight to the hands 'of amateur and professional navigators'.
While it is currently seen as an 'extreme sports' incident the company hopes that the mode of transportation will one day realize its full potential and replace cars as the go to mode.
