Some­thing to get ex­cited about: the Pow­erUp FPV pa­per plane. Sure, it has a silly name, but it’s more than just a reg­u­lar fold-and-throw. The kit con­sists of a camera and a cou­ple of pro­pel­lers, which you strap to your own pa­per plane, then hook up to your smart­phone. Slot your phone into the pro­vided Google Card­board VR head­set, and the Pow­erUp gives you a first-per­son view from the plane in flight— which you then con­trol with move­ments of your head. How awe­some is that? And of course, ev­ery time you get bored of your plane’s de­sign—just scrap it and fold an­other. The Pow­erUp FPV is avail­able for pre-or­der now for US$200 ($1,551), and will start ship­ping in Novem­ber. powerup­
