Power Up: Motorize your paper airplane designs!

Power UpPower Up turns any paper airplane in to a motorized flying machine! In 2011, Shai Goitein – creator of the PowerUp Toys concept – made these thoughts a reality, developing PowerUp’s first product: The Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit. The propeller unit transforms your homemade paper planes into electric aircrafts capable of twisting and turning through open skies for 30 seconds or more – a paper airplane 2.0! NASA engineers are raving about PowerUp’s first eco-friendly, innovative design, which was awarded the ATA 2012 Best Hobby Product of the Year.

Drop in and make a few paper airplanes to give this fabulous flying toy a whirl.  Friday, June 21st 5:30-8:00 pm.

See Power Up in action!
