Back in 2013, Google bought Makani Power, a California-based company that makes airborne wind turbines, aka "energy kites." Makani is now part of Google X's semi-secret innovation lab devoted to making clean energy more accessible.
And based on the amount of recently posted job openings for this new project, we're guessing those airborne wind turbines could be a reality sooner rather than later.
