Dubai’s law enforcement is getting cutting-edge technology once again.
In May, “Robocop,” the latest addition to Dubai’s police force, made its first appearance at the Fourth Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference. And last week, a hoverbike made for the Dubai Police made by Russian transportation Hoversurf was unveiled at the Gulf Information Technology Exposition.
The battery-powered bike is able to travel up to 43 miles per hour and can run for 25 minutes on a charge. The name of the bike model is “Scorpion,” and it also has big blades that look somewhat dangerous if handled incorrectly, but it is a prototype and will take years to come into service, they might cover them with some protective covers.
The bike can carry up to 660 pounds as cargo, will be used in the event of an emergency in places that are tough to reach for police vehicles.
