“The Beast” Hover Air Bike Is a Glimpse at the Future of Personal Air Vehicles

Berlin-based designer Rico Kersten has provided us with a glimpse at what the future of personal air vehicles could look like. His otherworldly concept, dubbed “The Beast,” is in turn a single-pilot “radial fan driven hover-air-bike.”

This isn’t Kersten’s first sci-fi-inspired design, however. Rico has produced roughly 16 futuristic concepts over the years.

“The Beast” blends the forms of contemporary motorcycle with flying hovercraft, as his renderings acted as an entry for this year’s Allegorithmic contest, “A Road Trip in 2116.” Rico’s hover concept was then judged by a panel of industry professionals as it could potentially serve to inspire manufacturers with future designs.

In short, we could definitely see “The Beast” appearing in an upcoming sci-fi blockbuster. Don’t you think?
