Man builds homemade jet-powered Star Wars landspeeder
Who wouldn’t want to drive their morning commute in a fully functional jet-powered X-34 landspeeder?
UK YouTube personality and inventor Colin Furze has built the closest thing to a real Star Wars speeder (video above). The vehicle is based on Luke Skywalker’s Tatooine transport in 1977’s A New Hope and is both electric-powered and has functioning mini jets (skip to 2:17 in the video to see the jets in action). It’s perfect for a quick drive out across the Dune Sea.
Furze built the X-34 landspeeder in conjunction with eBay, but he really should keep any sale expectations modest: Ever since the XP-38 came out, they just aren’t in demand.
The inventor previously made headlines by building a giant AT-ACT from Rogue One:
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker comes out Dec. 20.
