It’s safe to say that a trip to Dubai is on many people’s bucket list these days. The city exudes opulence with its attractions and balling visitors. Of course, the police in Dubai are gonna be on some other shit with all of the money flowing through. On Sunday, the Dubai police unveiled some pretty interesting new equipment that is sure to blow minds at Gitex Technology Week.
The craziest thing the cops unveiled was their new flying bike called the “Hoversurf.” It is to be used in emergency situation. “It works on electricity and can fly at five meters height and carry a policeman during emergency situations and heavy traffic. The bike can also fly without a passenger and and can go up to 6 kilometers. It can fly for 25 minutes and can carry up to 300 kg of weight at a speed of 70km/h,” said First Sergeant Ali Ahmad Mohammad from the Dubai Police Force’s VIP Security Department.
Also unveiled was a smart motorbike (designed in a collaborative effort between the Dubai Police and Japanese company Mikasa), equipped with multiple cameras to seek out reckless drivers. “The smart motorbike has eight cameras to take pictures and videos of violating vehicles. The battery-operated motorbike has a maximum speed of 200km/h,” Emirati policewoman Huda Hassan detailed. “We will check it after Gitex for a week and see the results before taking it to the streets.”
That’s not all. The police force will also be utilizing robotic vehicles complete with biometric software “to scan for wanted criminals and undesirable elements.” Gulf News reports:
About the size of a child’s electric toy car, the driverless vehicles will patrol different areas of the city to boost security and hunt for unusual activity, all the while scanning crowds for potential persons of interest to police and known criminals.
According to Brigadier Al Razooqi, “It can recognize people in any area and identify suspicious objects and can track suspects. It has a drone and the user [police officer] needs to access the car through fingerprint. It will be deployed at tourist destinations in Dubai. It has cameras and will be linked to the command room.”
