if it is any one of the above comments that would be pretty disappointing considering the content of the video

LIGHT YEARS AHEAD... everything above has already been done by someone else. If they do that then they would be years behind.... well except the albatross thing but that was just silly

taming an albatross has already been done? fine then..

solar panel engine sail for lightwind days including delayed weather manipulation generator to attract local low pressure systems for more fun. and it talks to whales..

happy now?

I think they mean "light" as in "light as a feather" and not light speed years.

Only innovation I can think of to save weight and drag is a single front line kite.

Would save some time untangling lines if nothing else.
