It’s an interesting thing, and they’ve already built a scale model.

From the pdf, which also has nice pictures of the scale model:

This idea is good for normal kite flying but would not be suitable for power generation. It would be incompatible with a yo-yo system and would interfere with the operation of a lifter kite since we require steady tension in the tether to maintain lift. The tension in the two side control tethers subtract from this tension.
