Links and pointers for kite based energy systems

The idea to use kites for capturing wind energy sounds fascinating to me. Lets look what I can find on this topic:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_altitude_wind_power

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kite_applications#Power_generation

Starting points

http://www.skysails.info/deutsch/produkte/die-skysails-technologie/

Kites as sails for ships

http://flygenkite.com/

Kites with generators

http://orthokitebunch.pagesperso-orange.fr/page-5.html

Ugly page by the same author with a larger scale concept

http://www.kitegen.com/en/?page_id=48

"Industrial" scale application

http://energykitesystems.net/

Lots of information on the the topic, behind a frontpage wall of uglyness.

http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/AirborneWindEnergy/messages

Maybe 'the' mailing list for the topic

http://www.drachen.org/journals/a16/Using-kites-to-generate-electricity.pdf

Summary of some research about possible methods to get energy

Another interesting system, has google backing.
