Italian
sw33tf00l
A prototype kiting system is being tested to generate electricity,
breaking away from conventional wind turbines, they system uses 12 'stacks' of 3 kites similar to those in a way similar to those featured on the BBC's red 'kiting' preview. see film below
The difference is those are operated by humans, the kitegen will be computer aided robots to fly & control the kites in the wind.
