Smartphone-controlled Paper Airplane Kickstarter shatters funding goal on day one

PowerUp-remote-airplane

Have you ever found yourself attempting to construct “the perfect paper airplane” for the ten thousandth time only to look down at your smartphone and wonder what it would be like if you had more control over this simple flying craft? Probably not, but thanks to Shai Goitein’s PowerUp 3.0 that’s exactly what you’re about to start thinking.

Paper airplane tech hasn’t exactly changed very much. The folds get a little more specific as you get older, and you start playing with the weight of paper you use, but by and large the concept remains the same. You throw the airplane, and if it isn’t destroyed by the “landing” you can scoop it up and try it again.

What if you could strap an engine to your paper airplane and get a little more mileage out of it? What if that engine was Bluetooth 4 enabled and could be controlled by your smartphone? What if this seemingly magical accessory was only $30? These are all questions that someone else has not only asked already, but answered via Kickstarter.
