Electric bike takes to the skies

13 June 2013 Last updated at 10:45 BST

Three companies in the Czech Republic have collaborated on a prototype bicycle that is also capable of flying.

Currently in the test phase, a mannequin is placed on the bike while it is controlled remotely like a model aeroplane.

But in the near future a human will sit on the bike, and control it from there, according to developers.

While on the ground the bike is pedal-powered, and in the air it is powered by a battery, which currently limits flight time to 5 minutes.
