It’s a bike! … It’s a helicopter! … Is it BOTH?! The world’s first hover-bike is now for sale in Japan. This invention looks like a cross between a snowmobile and a motorcycle. You won’t be able to drive it on the road (yet), but it will fly at a top speed of 62 miles an hour.
The ‘X-Turismo air cruiser‘ is 12 feet long and has six propellers (like a drone) with handlebars and a seat built on top of them. They cost more than half a million dollars, and you must pre-order them months in advance. The invention is not street-legal or legal to fly in the air, but it’s undoubtedly innovative!
The future of transportation will be based on STEM innovation. We should always look for new and innovative methods beyond current solutions. Advancements like these are why the curriculum on our Collab-Lab addresses social-emotional development while bolstering positive child outcomes through STEM activities. Our Centers of Excellence use a 21st-century learning framework grounded in a comprehensive research-based curriculum that stresses STEM learning. Getting our future workforce to start thinking, imagining, and solving everyday issues is imperative to improving the future of transportation.
As leaders in early childhood education for more than 35 years, Collaborative for Children’s goal is to ready young children for school and the 21st century with innovative programs focused on positive outcomes.
