A flying car that will not require a pilot's licence to operate has been unveiled in California.
BlackFly can travel for up to 25 miles (40km) at a speed of 62mph.
Its makers say it will eventually cost the same as a typical sports-utility car, but early models will be more expensive.
It was revealed on Thursday the company is funded by Google co-founder Larry Page.
Mr Page is also behind Kitty Hawk, a separate US start-up currently testing its personal aircraft in Las Vegas.
Several other rival flying cars are in development across the globe.
BlackFly's creator is the Palo Alto-based firm Opener. The car has been tested in Canada, where the country’s aviation authority has authorised its use.
Like Kitty Hawk, BlackFly could perhaps be more accurately described as a human-carrying drone. It is not designed to be driven on roads.
The vehicle carries one person in a small cockpit, powered by “eight propulsion systems, spread across two wings”.
It works best, Opener says, when taking off and landing from grassy surfaces.
“Watching BlackFly take flight just blew me away,” said Darren Pleasance, director of the US Experimental Aircraft Association. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”
While the vehicle will not require a pilot's licence, Opener said as a precaution riders would have to undergo a training programme in order to become acquainted
