Mining energy from vehicle suspension systems
(an eye for AWES applications)
Where they find the best response in using regenerative actuators which are composed of linear DC motors is in high frequency. This best correlates in AWES to a tensed single-line flip-wing buzzing-style motion.
Whereas if you look to recover energy from the low frequency side sweep of a massive array (as in the multiple soft kites hosted under a Mothra), then you're better off driving a large fluid volume from a closed-system reversible-stroke actuator through a hydraulic motor--like in some of my earliest sketches.

(Legal Note: Open AWE CC sharing and claims rest on "artist's moral rights", under the Berne Convention.
Inventing is a true creative Art, by long tradition.
The intent in Open AWE is to make the widely emerging new form of CC IP voluntarily accepted and fairly valued,
as AWE's professional best-practice standard. Comments invited.)

so now we are integrated with the latest standard cooperative IP model, but "coolIP" remains a nice shorthand.
