London: Three Czech Republic companies have teamed up to make a prototype of an electric bicycle that can fly.

The amazing machine is currently controlled remotely while in development but its designers hope to have it capable of carrying people soon, Sky News reported.

Looking like a heavy mountain bike, it has two propellers in the front, other two in the back and one on each side.

Its six engines are powered by batteries and weighs 95kg.

They also hope battery technology will advance enough to improve the five minute flights it is capable of performing currently and make the invention marketable.

Milan Duchek, the technical director of Duratec Bicycles said that the capacity of batteries doubles about every 10 years, which they expect that in the future the capacity would be enough for the bike to be used for sports, tourism or similar things.
