Kitty Hawk, a company backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, has unveiled an electric flying taxi called Cora. Cora is a self-flying aircraft that can take off vertically like a helicopter and transition to flying like a plane. As such, it has the potential to take off from rooftops and transport people across cities. Kitty Hawk is restricted by flying regulations in the USA, but is working with the government of New Zealand to bring Cora to market.
