Aerodynamic Cube Kite

Little Shining Man is a kite made out of 1,700 3D printed connectors, carbon fiber rods and cubenfiber aerospace fabric. It was conceived by Heather and Ivan Morison, designed by Sash Reading, engineered and fabricated by Queen & Crawford. The kite, which resembles a large cube with glass-like lizard scales is absolutely stunning – especially when the sunlight reflects against it. Check out the video, below, of its test flight in New Jersey. It's incredibly magical and completely captivating!
