The US Army has been developing a rideable hoverbike concept that looks a bit like a quadcopter drone.
It may seem like something out of a science fiction movie, but according to the US Army, the idea of building a one-man hovering bicycle is not only possible, it is actually in active development.

Designed like a quadcopter drone but with the strength to carry one person, the device has been assigned the name 'Joint Tactical Aerial Resupply Vehicle' and is intended to provide a quick way to transport key supplies to military personnel on the battlefield.
"Anywhere on the battlefield, soldiers can potentially get resupplied in less than 30 minutes," said researcher Tim Vong. "We're working with users in the joint community to look at this concept."

A technology video with new footage of the hoverbike can be viewed below.
