The DIY SkyCycle Kit Will Let Crafty People Soar

Don't worry about traffic jams anymore. This SkyCycle is a cross between a motorcycle and a gyroplane. It can race to 55 mph on the ground and more than 100 mph in the air. Unfortunately, it is only available as a kit, so you'll have to rely on your own craftsmanship: but it will only cost you about $37,000.

Implications - The Super Sky Cycle has a rotor system similar to that of a helicopter, with flaps that can fold up so that you can easily park your bike and not hit anyone or anything. Although the concept seems pretty cool, a crash landing could definitely cause some harm. Be sure to wear a helmet and extra padding!
