First it was hover boards and now our Back to the Future dreams are coming true. Footage of the first ever prototype of a flying car has surfaced and I'm not going to lie it looks like a scene straight out of Spy Kids.
Am I right? Kitty Hawk, a Silicon-Valley startup backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, released this video of the flying car today on Twitter, and TBH I don't know how to feel. According to ABC, the aircraft — an all-electric ultralight one-seater referred to as an octocopter. Kitty Hawk says,
"[it is] safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas...you don't need a pilot's license, and you'll learn to fly it in minutes."
The flyer can reach altitudes up to 15 feet. It is designed for use only over water and has a- yet- unannounced price, which means expensive. Not sure if I'm with it, but the company is v convincing stating,
"We believe when everyone has access to personal flight, a new, limitless world of opportunity will open up to them."
I just want to be a Spy Kid.
