      I’m a kite fan too and know the sense of awe you get when hauled off your feet on the end of a string.

      There’s another wind festival that I came across while cycling round Corsica – maybe you could link up in the future?

      Hello Everyone,

      The mention of kites got me thinking – I was sure I had seen something on the web about using them to generate power.

      These were not the concept that I remember reading about but interesting and amusing to those of us of a techy bent nevertheless:

      No doubt this sort of approach would alarm the Civil Aviation Authority, but if we all have to give up flying to hit the UK’s carbon reduction targets I assume that ceases to be a problem.

      I will try to dig up some more – but I have just been reminded it is bedtime.

      Best regards,

      Jonny.

      Hi. We saw you there. Have just found your website and have been reading the updates on the car.

      I’m looking forwards to the day when I can drive an electric car without worries or a massive overdraft.

      For now, I’ll stick with the bike and good old public transport. All the best though. We need the pioneers as well as the big-bucks to drive the engineering forwards.
