Google Co-Founder Larry Page Shows off Crazy ‘Flying Car’ Kitty Hawk

Backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, the Kitty Hawk Flyer travels over fresh water, and you don’t need a pilot’s license to fly one.

Kitty Hawk, a startup backed by the Google cofounder, unveiled its prototype for an “ultralight” aircraft that can take off vertically — as long as you’re flying over open water.

In a demonstration shared online Monday, the Kitty Hawk Flyer was shown lifting off over a lake with the help of horizontal drone-like small propellers under its base.

Sebastian Thrun, CEO of Kitty Hawk and a former Google exec who led the company’s self-driving car efforts, described the mission on Twitter as nothing short of “changing the future of personal transportation.”
