Alexander Graham Bell’s Tetrahedral Kites

Sehr kunstig, sehr radikal, sehr modern.
Ähnelt teilweise meinen neuesten Filmen.

Bell began his experiments with tetrahedral box kites in 1898, eventually developing elaborate structures comprised of multiple compound tetrahedral kites covered in maroon silk, constructed with the aim of being to carry a human through the air. Named Cygnet I, II, and III (for they took off from water) these enormous tetrahedral beings were flown both unmanned and manned during a five year period from 1907 until 1912.
