With driverless and electric vehicles stirring up a storm in Silicon Valley, Google co-founder Larry Page and his latest startup’s crew have finally revealed plans for a new spin on futuristic “all-electric aircraft.” Billed as a flying car prototype, the new Kitty Hawk Flyer is an aerial vehicle that’s intended to travel over water and doesn’t require any sort of pilot’s license to operate. Consumers will be able to purchase their own Kitty Hawk Flyer by year’s end, and reportedly will be able to learn the basics of operating the product “in minutes.” “We’ve all had dreams of flying effortlessly. I’m excited that one day very soon I’ll be able to climb onto my Kitty Hawk Flyer for a quick and easy personal flight,” Larry Page tells The New York Times in an official press statement. Besides the Kitty Hawk Flyer, the Mountain View, CA-based Kitty Hawk startup is also currently designing several other similar prototypes.
