Larry Page, co-founder of Google, is one of those people who is very clear that in the future we will all travel using vehicles or flying cars and, in order to develop this idea, funding must be provided to companies that work today in these kinds of ideas. Thanks precisely to this, today we can talk about how Larry Page himself invested nothing less than 100 million in two companies with projects in this field of which, at least one, has already submitted a first prototype.
We talk about Kitty Hawk and your vehicle Flyers, the same that you can see in the image located right at the top of this same post and that, if it stands out for something, it is because it is much more similar to a large commercial drone, as we know them today, than to a car. Among the most interesting details, it should be noted that, at least for the moment, it is developed to be used on water while, to move, it uses only electric motors.
Kitty Hawk Flyer, a flying vehicle that will hit the market in 2017.
Unfortunately, all those details that as fans of new technologies we like to know have not yet been revealed, although the company has commented that, in order to use it, the pilot's license will not be necessary and that the first units will reach their lucky owners at end of 2017. If you are interested, just tell you that the company already has at your disposal a priority waiting list in which you can register upon payment of 100 dollars.
Once you are registered, you will be able to access events and tests in flight simulations to decide whether or not you finally get a unit. In case you are still interested, those registered on this priority list will be able to enjoy a $ 2.000 discount off final sale price.
