In April previous year, Google co-founder Larry Page publicly announced he was building an electric, flying vehicle through a company called Kitty Hawk. 12 independent lift fans power the taxi so it can take off and land much like a helicopter, and doesn't require a runway.
Early specifications show that the fully-autonomous aircraft is capable of reaching a top speed of 110mph and have a flight range of approximately 62 miles.
Kitty Hawk was rumoured to be pitching a "flying car" prototype as far back as 2016 - when it began pitching the concept to various governments to secure backing.
Reports surfaced in 2016 that Google co-founder (and now Alphabet CEO) Larry Page had two "flying car" projects in the works, and while we saw the Flyer recreational vehicle unveiled a year ago, today it's time to meet Cora.
