A Better Angry Birds?
The biggest gaming app can’t get any better, can it? Students at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design think so. Hideaki Matsui and Andrew Spitz created, Super Angry Birds, a physical controller including a slingshot and detonator for the popular game. The video below shows the device in action. Basically, the units connect via USB. The slingshot can be aimed up or down and its motorized slider enables you to release the birds just as you would on a touch screen. Geek.com has more on the technicalities of how it works. And the inventors have no plans to sell the device. But with such realistic control of a game it is fun to think of what other controllers may be possible.
