Hello, I just joined the board. This is my first post here.

Anyway.. I was looking at some of the information about "Water from thin air" at this thread:

http://www.permies.com/t/18620/permaculture/Water-thin-air

I was then reminded about something I read elsewhere that in arid climates (where there might only be 10% humidity or something like that. ) there is more water in the air at higher altitudes.

So I was kind of hoping we could put our heads together on the idea of Dew Collection/ AWG/ Water from air, using kites.

Kites come in all types of sizes, even strong enough to pull commercial shipping frigates.

Maybe the condenser unit could funnel its water harvest down a tube to a collection tank.
Maybe the tube could also be the kite tether.. or maybe it would stretch it so much it would be closed.

Maybe a unit idea would be a lift kite with a few funnel tube kites on the tether that are coated with copper metal flake paint (I am imagining the copper paint would have a similar effect as the copper wool and the paint would make a slicker surface for the water to move across and collect on) , then when water starts forming on it and it gets heavy and saggy all the water would run to the end, down a thin tube connected to the bottom of the sock/tube.funnel that pipes over to the main drain down.

What do you folks think of the possibility of this air born water generating creature?
