This is How I’d Like to Play Angry Birds

Rovio doesn’t know it yet but a couple hackers have come up with the next hot Angry Birds accessory. It’s a USB controller which simulates the slingshot game play of the hit app, and it offers a new and fun way to kill the little piggies which you can see is a lot of fun.

As you can see from the video above, the controller was cobbled together from a slider, an Arduino board, and a button (so you can use each character’s special trick). The hackers haven’t indicated whether they plan to release this as a kit or commercial accessory, but I’m hoping the do. It looks like a lot of fun. I’m also hoping that other hackers take up the design and come up with their own uses; this might inspire a new genre of games.
