PowerUp releases its phone-controlled paper airplane

Most of the kits will arrive later in the month, although a few (including the standard Solo kit) might not ship until May.

As before, PowerUp’s Dart is all about converting paper planes from simple gliders into powered aircraft you can steer with an app. It should not only be less expensive than a model aircraft (especially if there’s a crash), but gives you the freedom to fold the airplane that suits your style. You can make a slow-but-steady distance champ, a speed demon or something in between. Think of it as a customizable remote-controlled machine that you can afford to fly aggressively.

“It’s the end of the road for me,” Al Hoffman Jr., a prominent Florida real-estate developer, told The New York Times.

Ancient city’s LiDAR scans reveal as many buildings as Manhattan

“That is a huge area with a lot of people and a lot of architectural foundations that are represented,” Fisher told The Guardian. According to their estimates, the city had around 1,500 structures per square kilometer of land. “If you do the maths,” he added, “all of a sudden you are talking about 40,000 building foundations up there, which is [about] the same number of building foundations that are on the island of Manhattan.” Further, LiDAR also led to the discovery that the city had an unusual layout, with big structures like pyramids and open plazas situated around the edges rather than in the center.

The Purépecha people existed at the same time as the Aztecs. While they are nowhere near as popular as their rivals, they were still a major civilization and had an imperial capital called Tzintzuntzan in western Mexico. Based on the team’s LiDAR scans, though, Angamuco is even bigger Tzintzuntzan. It likely wasn’t as densely populated, read more
