The company is called Zee.Aero, and despite being snuggled up right next to Google, its head of HR (and the man listed as inventing this vehicle) Ilan Kroo denies being affiliated with the tech giant. Whether or not there is an affiliation, it's clear someone has been filling Zee.Aero's coffers. The image above (taken from a helicopter) is actually about a year old, meaning that this flying car has already been in the works for a while.
The people who snapped these images might not have realized quite what they had, simply thinking that they had caught a glimpse of some sort of new drone. But a new patent, filed this August by Zee.Aero, leaves little doubt. An image in the patent filing shows the flying car parked between a family sedan and a station wagon. If that's not an indication that this vehicle is meant to become a flying family vehicle, we're not sure what is.
