Video: Two Hundred Paper Airplanes Launched from Space

These guys attached a bag of 200 airplanes to a helium filled weather balloon and launched them from the edge of space above Berlin. Each plane has a memory card containing a unique message. If you find a plane, they want to hear from you. So far, these little planes have made it as far as Canada, California, and South Africa.  

Awesome modern message-in-a-bottle idea or just a clever Samsung ad?
