From mechanical wings to jet packs, man’s desire to fly stretches back centuries. But, like flying cars and teleportation, it’s a concept that’s still just beyond our grasp.

But for the particularly gutsy extreme sports enthusiast, Hoversurf’s Scorpion 3 Hoverbike just might carry over any fleeting flying desires in the meantime.

Built as a combination between a motorcycle and a quadcopter drone, the 265-pound electric-powered vehicle is capable of reaching heights of 33 feet at a top speed of 30 MPH. And while it may be stable enough to stay in the air (indoors at least) thanks to a custom-built software to limit its range and velocity, there’s no saying what might happen if your leg happens to come a little too close to one of those blades:

Hoversurf is currently crowdfunding the Hoverbike with a retail price of $150,000. But seriously—for that much, can’t they at least include a protective cage over each of the blades?

Stay updated on the project over at Hoversurf.
