The Pima Air & Space Museum in Tuscon, Arizona decided what the world really wants to see isn't a man pretending to fly, but a helicopter getting forced out of the sky by the weight of a 45-foot-long paper aircraft. Good news: there's a video and everything.
I'm pretty sure they won't let you use an electric bike in the Tour de France, so why should we tolerate paper airplanes with tiny electric motors? Because it sounds pretty awesome, that's why.
Remember when we reported that Samsung dropped 100 paper airplanes over Germany from 122,000 feet?
Like most kids, back when I was in school I would occasionally make and throw a few paper airplanes to fight the boredom. Well if this video is anything to go by, it appears that surgical robots can get bored too,
The distance from Germany to Australia is approximately 10,000 miles. This seems like rather a long way for a paper airplane to fly. As it turns out, it's really not so hard, if you just launch a hundred of 'em from 20 miles up.
