BMW and LEGO team up to Create Flying Hoverbike – AIB
It is probably every child’s dream – to have their Lego creation transformed into real life.
Although, the hovering vehicle will not hit the markets anytime soon, the press release by BMW displayed their excitement about the project as they described the Hover Ride as a futuristic concept.
BMW and LEGO design elements have been bringing designers from both companies to create projects which ensure that the management trainees at the BMW training unit develop multi-disciplinary skills. As a part of team building exercise, the team built this life-size model of the Hover Ride, fully functional with a propeller.
BMW Motorrad’s Head of Vehicle Design, Alexander Buckan, spoke on the project in a video!
“This futuristic concept bike is pretty amazing. I’m really impressed how an idea can be created by LEGO elements and actually become a valid suggestion on how we can ride a motorcycle in the future.”
