Sometimes things actually do go according to plan! Yesterday I built a box and packed up the latest prototype Skyaak Ultra-Glow …just a working name, will change…to send it flying off to Astral Media, headquarters of Z Tele in Montreal, PQ. I have been speaking with Genevieve Paradis, the Feature Director at Z Tele for a couple of weeks now as we get organized.

Genevieve had originally seen Skyaak when she visited our Long Island NY agents NewdaVincis.com. The owner phoned me to tell the exciting news that Ms. Paradis had requested a narrow field of six items from the NewdaVincis inventory.  Considering that there are at present over 630 items in stock, that is pretty cool! She has zeroed in on these products as candidates  that she wished to feature on the popular TV show  “Le Banc D’Essai du Peuple”, or “The Test of the People” that she produces. This show features host Mathieu Gratton as he presents innovative new gadgets, toys and devices to everyday people for their candid reaction, with an emphasis on home-grown ( North American ) products.  Aired nationally in Canada as well as in streaming video online, the show will be featuring Skyaak this fall.

Wish us luck!

Once she had the first pkg in her hot little hands, Ms. Paradis requested that we send her an additional unit, rigged up with our proprietary LED array that allows night-time play.

Dylan Cooke, AKA “the LED Guy” and I were excited to oblige Ms. Paradis’ request. Not only did we have lots of fun dabbling in some electronic gadgetry, we got solid results as you will see:

I will take credit for coming up with this special feature: micro-skyaak inside the shaft!

It’s a great feeling to know that we have pulled it together in just a couple of days and now, as we speak, the Skyaak with LED array is flying off to Montreal where it will land directly in the hands of Ms. Paradis later this week! Hang on for the ride as Z Tele works it out to feature this puppy in live action! Don’t know about you, but we are stoked to see what they come up with. BTW, Z Tele specializes not only in featuring cool new inventions and gadgets, they also host a galaxy of sci-fi shows. Could this be the perfect storm to blow the lid off Skyaak…to launch it to the next level? We shall all just have to wait and see.

You can grab a Skyaak DIY ‘deuce’ right now to experience the rush of ring-wing flight in just a few easy steps!
