CoolIP index Most recent edit: Wednesday January 29, 2014
* See legal note below.
It seems the SuperTurbine key claim to
novelty is its central rigid driveshaft. Rod's "kite cone" design does not
depend on such a driveshaft, acting instead more like a tilted carousel (a
wheel driven by a multiplicity of kites and lines). Older wind patents
cover torque transmitted by outer guylines.
Comment and development of this topic will be occurring here.

(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.)
Note: coolIP is hereby defined as a Creative-Commons Unported NonCommercial
so now we are integrated with the latest standard cooperative IP model, but "coolIP" remains a nice shorthand.
