In a move straight out of Star Wars, the Dubai Police will soon have officers fighting crime aboard hoverbikes.

Officers are already training on the 'eVTOL', or 'electric vertical take-off and landing' vehicles, which look like kind of like a four-wheeler with propellors instead of wheels.

Officials say the hoverbikes could be used to get into hard-to-reach areas, and should be in operation by 2020.

The bikes come from a California-based company called Hoversurf - and you can buy one yourself for the low, low price of $150,000.

The website says their hover bike and car are "easy to use" and are vehicles built "for the present, not the future."
