Watch This Insane Helicopter-Bike Fly Around

Surface-bound Citibikes are so last week.

Hey, cyclists: why are you still bicycling on asphalt like chumps when there’s this (totally safe-looking, not at all super-dangerous) flying bicycle?

Just kidding! You’re not allowed to pilot this just yet, actually. The helicopter-bike is a prototype developed by a team of three Czech companies, which just took it for a five-minute test flight inside a Prague exhibition hall. That’s actually a lightweight dummy in the driver’s seat, since those massive propellers make this thing weigh over 200 pounds, meaning it’s not yet flyable with the weight of a human on board.

But please, please make this for humans soon, somebody. Going to make for an interesting Tour de France.
