TailorToys Gives Flight to Paper Planes with an iPhone Controlled Add-On

TailorToys has released PowerUp 3.0, an attachment meant to give paper planes controlled flight.

PowerUp is a small propeller add-on that can power paper planes. This is a great concept as it allows people to be creative with their own paper airplane and see it actualized in the air with realistic flight.

The PowerUp device is not a new product, but the fact that it can be controlled by the iPhone makes it a breakthrough. This is also the reason why it was the recipient of the Popular Science TOYFAIR 2013 award at the NY Toy Fair.

Many will wonder what else this attachment can be fastened to. I can visualize some pretty hilarious pranks as a result of this. Stats for Powered Paper Planes Trending: Older & Mild
