KiteSim is a simulator that allows beginners and up to realistically fly a power kite when weather conditions are bad. To investigate the necessities for a realistic look & feel I did user-experience research, made tangible interactive controllers, explored various concepts and did evaluative tests.

The result entails tangible controls, a force feedback mechanism for traction on the harness, a video screen and computers. All held together by a strong frame that is portable and easy to assemble for even the most remote areas of the world.
