Swooping in on criminals
DUBAI: Police could soon be swooping in on crims from the sky. The Middle Eastern nation’s police have been caught training on hoverbikes that they claim will help first responders reach difficult areas more easily.
And the robocoptors could be one day be piloted by robocops, with Dubai eager to have robots alongside regular police by 2030. Hoversurf – a Russian-owned company based in California – has gifted Dubai’s police its first serial production of the electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles after a deal was signed last year.
