How many of you have ever made a paper flying airplane? From folding the paper to hoping that it flies far – the whole process is fun. Believe it or not, one gadget is now making flying paper planes even better!
PowerUp 3.0 turns your paper-made airplane into a flying machine, which you can control from your smartphone. Yes, you heard it right – you can control your hand-made paper airplane through your smartphone. How cool is that?
PowerUp 3.0 consists of a smart module that you attach to the folded paper airplane and an app through which you can navigate the module. And the specs are fascinating – 10 minutes flight on one charge, 55-meter range, crash-proof bumper, precision control, and automatic trust to assist the plane when turning.
The app features are also very cool – on the screen of your smarthone you will see a magnetic compass and artificial horizon, and different indicators – for the trust level, the charging status, battery level, and thrust level.
Here is how PowerUp 3.0 works:
