Colin Furze, the UK's favorite plumber-turned-garage inventor, has just built his own working hoverbike. A couple years back we were pumped to show you the military-grade hoverbike built by LA engineering firm Aero-X, which promised to bring Star Wars speederbike thrills at an expected $85k cost on the open market. Now that it's 2016, some guy just made one in his back yard through trial-and-error.
"That is the most outrageous thing I have ever ridden," says Furze, who's also created and driven a motorized drift trike, a jet-powered go-kart, and the world's fastest toilet throughout his illustrious YouTube career. The vehicle looks unwieldy, and can only be controlled by leaning the body in the desired direction, but it's still a working hoverbike made with the materials available to your everyday YouTube star. At the end, he completes the illusion of a straight-up Star Wars speeder bike, with obligatory neon lights and firework launchers. Put on John Williams' score for the speeder bike chase scene in Return of the Jedi for maximum effect.
