The Aerofex Corporation has this video showcasing a working personal hoverbike that uses a ducted fan for motion. Doesn't quite look as slick as the one in Star Wars but as a prototype, it'll do.
Imagine personal flight as intuitive as riding a bike. Or transporting a small fleet of first-responder craft in the belly of a passenger transport. Think of the advantages of patrolling borders without first constructing roads.
In pursuit of this vision, Aerofex is flying a proof-of-concept craft developed as a test-bed of manned and unmanned technologies.
