I wonder what my wife would say if she came home and found that thing in
the garage.

What makes this any different than a normal gyroplane? I've seen
this before and I imagine that the builder is a bit optimistic. For
example, who is going to license a road vehicle that has an uncaged 4
foot propellor spinning on the back? And it doesn't look like much of
a "motorcycle". That top-heavy tricycle config is just asking to tip
over if you turn it hard. It doesn't even have the benefit of driven
wheels to help keep it on the road. Am I missing something?
Gyroplanes have been around since the 1920s, what is the "new" part of
this invention?
