Self-driving cars are nice, but flying cars are where it’s at. Especially for Google co-founder Larry Page who apparently spent more than $100 million USD of his own money to bring aerial vehicles into existence. According to Bloomberg Businessweek‘s new extensive report, Page has been funding two startups — Zee.Aero and Kitty Hawk — to build prototypes at each of the two companies’ secretly owned warehouses. Zee.Aero runs tests at an airport that is pretty close to Mountain View, California while Kitty Hawk is tirelessly working on a humongous model of a quadcopter drone. And with a net worth of over $30 billion USD, it’s easy for Page to possibly hire an army of engineers from agencies like NASA and Boeing to possibly help him construct these high-tech aircrafts.

Take a look at Bloomberg Businessweek‘s report and check out the patent drawings from Zee.Aero and Kitty Hawk above.
