One small step for man, one giant leap for 'Star Wars' becoming a reality.

Just when you thought the military couldn't think of any more ways to kill people, they have to go out and make a flying motorcycle. The project was originally developed by Chris Malloy of Malloy Aeronautics, a U.K.-based start-up specializing in drone technology. Malloy's original goal was to create a 1/3rd scale model of a hoverbike, which he accomplished with the help of Kickstarter. So yeah, sometimes there are other things you can invest in besides your friend's web series.
