A hoverbike currently being developed by British engineering company Malloy Aeronautics would bring drone technology to new heights.

The company is testing unmanned flights of the hoverbike, which, they say, will be able to reach an altitude of 9,000 feet when completed. Once they achieve aviation certifications for the unmanned model, they will be able to develop a manned prototype.

When finished, the quadcopter could be piloted by a person sitting on the bike or by remote control.

Videos of the test flights show just how high this bike can go. The drone used in the test is one-third the size the hoverbike will ultimately be.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
