Amazing Smartphone-Controlled Paper Airplane Soars

phone-powered-paper-airplaneHow many times have you made a paper airplane when you were young (or old)? Well, someone just took that simple idea to a new level by integrating technology.  Just fold your paper airplane and snap on a rudder and propeller and you’ll be flying with your smartphone in no time.  The smartphone paper plane was featured on kickstarter.com and has raised over $374,936 with almost 7,000 backers.  It’s definitely a cool idea, however now that the reasonable donation range has been fulfilled ($30 or more), I think most of us will wait until it comes out.

You can visit the kickstarter project here.

  1. Fold It: Simply fold a piece of copier paper into a paper airplane
  2. Attach It: Attach the Smart Module to your paper plane with the patented clips underneath the Smart Module.
  3. Connect It: Start the app to connect to the Smart Module with your iPhone.
  4. Fly It: Push throttle to full and launch the paper airplane high up into the sky. Tilt your smartphone to the left or to the right to steer your plane, increase or reduce throttle to go up or down.
