Bluetooth technology helps paper planes take off

TORONTO – PowerUp 3.0 has taken the average origami paper plane and transformed it into a paper drone by using the latest in Bluetooth Smart Technology and a free app for iPhone and Android devices.

Next week, the PowerUp 3.0 will take to the skies from July 28-Aug. 3, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, while making its USA debut at the EAA AirVenture.

PowerUp_3.0_grandePowerUp 3.0 generated over $1.2 million on Kickstarter and became one of the top funded programs in the flight category. In addition, the PowerUp 3.0 has also won Toy of the Year at the New York Toy Fair in 2013, and has been featured on Popular Science.

“I’m excited to be heading to Oshkosh for the EAA AirVenture airshow. I think it’s a great opportunity to present flying enthusiasts with the PowerUp 3.0,” said Shai Goitein, Inventor and President of PowerUp Toys. “We will have PowerUp products available for purchase during the week where fans will be able to get their hands on their very own plane and become a pilot!”

The PowerUp 3.0 will be available at Oshkosh for $50, the PowerUp 2.0 for $20 and a package of PowerUp Templates for $10.

The PowerUp 3.0 is currently being shipped to all Kickstarter backers and will be flying into retail venues this fall.
