As this video shows, we are close to industrial sewing automation for soft power kites with tailored panels and seams. Combine with fabric Roll Stock automation, and craft production of soft kites will no longer be technoeconomic. This sewing automation trend shifts global production advantage to whoever adopts the new technology. Power kites will become even better and also cheaper. A single super-factory could power the world.
