Cool New KiteMotors from Util and KiteLab Austin
- Util and KiteLab Austin are working closely together as partners toward a range of AWES offerings. A new series of AWES groundgen developmental prototypes is being prepared for evaluation under the new 300m2 arch, as a scale working kite farm. After Austin testing, a US tour is planned, and then an EU stint perhaps starting at Dieppe, then maybe Calabria, Isle of Lewis, etc. Live Music will be a key application.Here is the first scale device (~500W) of the latest family to show off in a cell-phone video by talented Util engineering manager, Ed Sapir, who also did most of the work. Note our signature Austin techne style, developed over many years. Its not a production or true scale model, but a creative study for more robust units next in the pipeline-Stay tuned for more "kitemotors" and many new power extraction wings and turbines, suited to hang from the big arch, that will drive these workcells.
