SINGAPORE - Kites filled the skies on Saturday (July 29) and Sunday (July 30), as the eighth annual kite flying festival took place at Marina Barrage. 
Organised by national water agency PUB and the Singapore Kite Association, the event saw the display of giant kites with unique designs by local and international kite fliers.

Among some of the more unique designs were kites that looked like Chinese opera masks, giant centipedes and even one that was in the shape of an angel. 
There were also stunt-kite performances, alongside kite making and wind garden making workshops.
 
A popular activity was the Lolli-Drop, in which participants caught mini parachutes that fell down with sweets attached. Over 100 mini parachutes were dropped each time.


There was also a Wind Garden, consisting of windmills with chilli, fish and lady bug designs.

From the Isle of Lewis in Scotland, Rod will be at Singapore Kite Day @ MB on 29 July 2017 to prove that networks of kites are the future of sustainable energy. He has spent the last 5 years experimenting with rotary kite network designs which he believes will supersede current wind turbine technology.
Rod shares his kite turbine ideas as Open Source Hardware. He says that “By not patenting, the designs can be shared online with people who need solutions now and they can’t be monopolised to further concentrate investor wealth.”

“Daisy” concept flies rings of power kites, line networked, at a wide radius around a lifting kite tether. The power kites are set to expand their rings while rotating. The wide separation of tense ring & kite tethers allows reliable torsion transmission from multiple kites simultaneously. Early prototypes generated over 500W. Short network lines are efficient so there is less drag per kite.

At under 2Kg of airborne weight and operating under 30m height, the small rotary kite network easily packs into a car boot for use anywhere even inside ATC zones.
