It is the brainchild Google co-founder Larry Page. BlackFly's designers say it can travel for to 40km at a speed 100kph. It will eventually cost the same as a typical sports-utility car. The vehicle has been tested Canada, which has authorized its use. Even though it will take to the skies, drivers (or pilots) will not need a pilot's license to get the controls. However, BlackFly operators will have to successfully complete a pilot's written examination and receive training how to use the vehicle.

The vehicle can only carry one person and is powered eight propellers - four the front the car and four at the back.
