So there is a buzz about kites pulling boats (ships) and saving energy… I LOVE technologies that are old fashioned and then make a big comeback (good example = steam engines). Questions – how do these things work when the wind in not in the right direction? They say they are computer controlled – what does the computer control? Why not sails which can give you a better angle? mrm
