The future isn’t far off as after Russian company Hoversurf posted a video featuring their prototype hoverbike, the Scorpion-3.

The demo shows the electric-powered Scorpion-3, equipped with a set of quadcopters to aid in its flight. But the prototype definitely isn’t just for show after a rider mounted it and hovered for a good 20 seconds in the air.

The Scorpion-3’s horizontal and vertical movements were also briefly showcased.

According to Hoversurf, they currently see the Scorpion-3 as something that can be used for extreme sports although they do plan to expand its use as an actual means of transportation.

“It’s a unique electric-powered vessel combining a motorcycle seat with quadcopter drone technology bringing speed agility and stability of flight to the hands of amateur and professional navigators,” the company said in a statement.
