This new invention took some serious dreaming, and then some even more serious engineering.

So, you’re wondering, is it a boat, a plane, or…? According to the creators, this vehicle, called Kitty Hawk, is an “ultralight aircraft” designed to be flown over fresh water. Impractical? Sure, but if you don’t want one, you’ve got to be kidding yourself.
Here is some more information about this unique invention from the Kitty Hawk website:
The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a new, all-electric aircraft. It is safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas under the Ultralight category of FAA regulations. We’ve designed our first version specifically to fly over water. You don’t need a pilot’s license and you’ll learn to fly it in minutes. We publicly revealed the working prototype in April 2017. The official Flyer will be available by the end of the year.
