"The kites are a huge hit in Japan," said Dean McCune, product manager for BioKite. "The kids quickly adopted them as collectable items as well as a fun and healthy way to spend outdoor time with family and school friends."
BioKites are designed by a Japanese dad and engineer and, unlike typical kites, use aerodynamic principles to create lift and eliminate air resistance. So, BioKites can fly in light winds and immediately go upwards, which means anyone can fly them, even city flyers with access only to smaller open urban areas and parks.
BioKite honors the bond between science and nature by applying aeronautic technology to amazingly life-like and life-sized kites shaped like animals, birds and butterflies. To celebrate summer and Father's Day, the company offers its easiest-to-fly Seagull and Falcon models, with advanced designs to be added to the line later.Attention Editors: More electronic images and MPEG video are available from www.biokiteworld.com or by contacting Susie Cover at firstname.lastname@example.org.
