Done any swashbuckling lately? Want to try it in the sky? Look no further than this handmade sailing ship kite, which takes flight on sails made of nylon on a ship made of bamboo.
It doesn't get much more elegant than a tall ship floating in the wind. At 66cm by 71cm, this kite is sizeable enough to catch a breeze and soar up into the heavens. It's also compact enough to make for a pretty handsome addition to your office, when you're not outside piloting it on windy days.
The kite was designed by Brooklyn studio Haptic Lab, the makers of the awesome Constellation Quilt. It's like your own ship in a bottle — except there is no bottle and this ship flies. And it only costs $US40! [Swiss Miss]
