Paper airplanes are a classic form of office entertainment whether you’re seeing how far you can throw them, trying to dunk in a wastepaper basket, or hitting your annoying coworker in the back of the head.
Back in 2013, Mashable wrote about POWERUP 3.0, an app-controlled device that you can attach to your paper airplanes to give it more speed and steering control. The aeronautic geniuses behind that project are back with an updated version that has a bunch of new features — most importantly the ability to do sweet tricks — that has already completely surpassed it’s goal.
The POWERUP team has returned to Kickstarter with their new model, which builds on the success of the previous ones. You still attach this little device to a paper airplane, which is then controlled on your phone via Bluetooth. In addition to the cool new moves, this updated version includes a crossbar for stability and attachable wheels and rear skid for smooth takeoff and landing. It also comes with printed templates for professional-quality paper airplanes, so you’ll get the most out of your DART.
The Kickstarter is wrapping up on October 18, with delivery for all backer purchases arriving before Christmas. If you’re looking for the perfect stocking stuffer, this is it.
