I did look at a number of designs and chose one based on the
parameters Marc described. I also wanted it to be slightly different
from the standard design seen around the world, so that it is more
memorable. There's no reason not to expand to multiple designs over
time, but I'm going to focus my energies on this one base, and let
others take and customize from there.

My latest version is here:

Marc's launch instructions are exactly right. This is a glider that
requires a gentle launch, but will float for quite a long time. See
my upcoming video for an idea (of apartment flying, anyway). I'll
link to it from our webpage and my blog when it's ready.

Thanks a lot for your work, it's really great! we will make it fly over the Francophonie ;-)

We should simultaneously launch them from the Eiffel Tower and the Empire State Building!

You can see the folding and flying process in my new video here:

If you just want to see the flight, it starts about 10 seconds from the end.
