Google has acquired a US company that generates power using turbines mounted on tethered kites or wings.

Makani Power will become part of Google X - the secretive research and development arm of the search giant.

The deal comes as Makani carries out the first fully autonomous flights of robot kites bearing its power-generating propellers.

Google has not said how much it paid to acquire Makani, but it has invested $15m (9.9m) in the company before now.Google Acquires Kite Turbine Power Generator Company, Makani [bbc.co.uk]

Presumably they'll equipe them all with onboard ground facing hi-def panoramic cameras..and then give them away to every neighborhood..
