150 years after Benjamin Franklin’s kite experiment, two young brothers named Orville and Wilbur Wright also saw the creative potential in a simple toy kite, and ended up making every child’s dream of flying a reality. That’s right: we owe the birth of 3 oz. toiletries and gourmet airline delicacies to kites.
One small step for kites, one giant leap for mankind. In 1889, Wilbur realized the potential for human flight depended on greater control and built a new kind of kite using his revolutionary concept of wing warping. From this initial design, the brothers eventually created gliders capable of supporting humans. Wilbur flew 120 feet along Kitty Hawk beach on January 17, 1903, and the rest is history. Airplanes? How about glorified kites?
The Wright brothers imagined a world of newfound mobility. At kitedrive, so do we. Kitedrive allows you to synchronize files securely across a variety of mobile devices, making it possible to take your work wherever your next flight leads. In the event of a water landing, you can remain calm knowing that your files will still be retrievable on other devices.
So the next time you use kitedrive to access your files on a plane or in an airport you can thank more than one kite-driven innovation. Would you like peanuts with that?
