Matchbox Scale MicroKite

Kites are cool. They have a long, long history, employ ancient crafts, and feature in many cultures around the world, yet can be made with modern materials to match the most extreme of sports.

A branch of the hobby that is often neglected is the microkite - kites as small as your hand, or even smaller.

How to Make a Kite Flying Machine

Many people try to fly microkites in the breeze from a desk fan.  Almost every single one fails, due to the extremely turbulent nature of the breeze from a fan. It’s worse than trying to fly a full-size kite between tall buildings.

This device allows you to fly microkites indoors, and could be seen as a kind of art installation as well.
