The World's first smartphone controlled paper airplane known as PowerUp3.0 is here, and taking the traditional paper plane to new heights.

The PowerUP combines origami with technology. Using integrated state-of-the art Bluetooth Smart technology, you are able to control the paper airplane straight off of your smartphone. Take it to the park and watch it zoom through the sky, or trick the park dogs and have them try to catch it to no avail. Simply attach the motor to a folded standard paper and launch the app, which is connected through the wireless receiver.

The iOS app is controlled by a wireless receiver and a motor linked by carbon fiber is the planes propeller. The plane could fly for up to ten hours on a single charge.
