Incredible 3D Printed Cube Kite

Three Cubes Colliding from Jimandtonic on Vimeo.
When I first saw the pictures, I thought: "hey, cool sculptural piece on a beach." Then I realized: "Holy cats, that thing is a KITE!". SO awesome. This from the description:
"UK-based designers sash reading, heather + ivan morison have created a three dimensional cube kite, 'three cubes collide'. The kite is formed by 1,700 3D printed connected segments and was engineered and manufactured by queen + crawford. The modular piece's easily scalable form levitates easily, regardless of its size, due to its lightweight composition of carbon fiber rods and cubenfiber aerospace fabric."
