PowerUp 3.0

PowerUp 3.0 is used to create a Smartphone Controlled Paper Airplane. It’s a device with a propeller on one end and a receiver on the other which is fitted to a paper plane. The plane is controlled by a smartphone app using Bluetooth technology, has a range of 180 feet and is charged via a USB cable.


PowerUp 3.0 had a (very) successful Kickstarter Project, achieving pledges to a total of $1,232,612 from a goal of $50,000
