Google Cofounder’s ‘Flying Car’ Makes Its Debut
Larry Page's long-rumored "flying car" project is finally ready for takeoff. 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 is shown lifting off over a lake with the help of small propellers under its base. The prototype looks less like a car than a jet ski with wings.
