Check out Kittyhawk’s autonomous electric flying taxi

Yeah, if I had Google-founder money, I’d be funding craziness like this pretty much nonstop. Fortunately, actual Google founder Larry Page is doing just that.

TechCrunch writes,

With Cora, Kitty Hawk’s real vision comes through – the startup aims to build, own and operate a fleet of these as an on-demand self-flying taxi service, beginning commercial operations in as few as three years’ time. No word yet on price or how this will operate exactly in terms of pick-up and drop-off points, but it seems farther along than a lot of the other pie-in-the-sky autonomous aerial taxi projects out there, thanks to official government support.

  1. I’m surprised the vertical lift motors don’t tilt and become the forward propulsion. Seems like a waste to have all that hardware as drag and dead-weight during regular flight.
