Looking much like the Wright brothers’ early 1900s flying bi-wing, Google’s Larry Page expects to soon introduce an all-electric simple flying machine. In honor of the brothers, he calls it the Kitty Hawk Flyer. It resembles a hybrid of small helicopter and drone, and a bit like the Jetsons' vehicle.

However, it won’t be allowed to land in busy roads. The small two-seater aircraft will be authorized to fly over water and away from busy commercial air traffic. When the Kitty Hawk Flyer is government approved, pilots can soar anywhere in the air, but must take off and land on lakes, rivers and at friendly seashore docks.
