Human Space Kite

In space a kite would not work due to the nonexistence of an atmosphere and blowing winds. However astronauts can still enjoy the fun of a kite-like experience by becoming the kite itself. These two harnesses would be held by an astronaut with 1 cm thick nylon rope attached to it and the other end to the astronaut in space. The astronaut on board would be able to manipulate the movements the one in space. A second pair can be printed to be used as secondary foot holds for extra safety.
