This link is here partly because I want 29 fantastic books, but you know what, he's right. Maybe you would like them too. If nothing else, this giveaway is a great list of books that today's great people should be reading. It's not just business, is about brilliance, and he other to know.
We’ve made a lot of progress since joining Google[x] last year—improving how we launch and land, how to fly in variable wind conditions, how to generate power more efficiently, and many other aspects of the system. Our new energy kite will reach higher, fly longer and generate 20 times more energy than earlier versions. We're moving from our proof of concept phase to a stage where we want to test ourselves against the "real world" challenges we'll face if we want to bring electricity to people.
So we’re hoping to start a pilot project next year on the island of Hawaii to test long-duration flights of our new energy kite for the first time, and to learn as much as much as possible—e.g. how much power we generate at different wind speeds and how to maintain the kite over long periods of time.
Makani has a long history with Hawaii—our name is inspired by Hawaiian winds and we tested an early prototype of our kite there in 2008—and we’ve found a great site there with ideal wind conditions. We’re still in the early stages, but we hope that if the pilot project is successful, we’ll be a step closer to making clean energy more accessible.
Somehow I feel more interested in documentaries than gaming? Maybe I'm just getting old.
