    Students Build Super Desktop Slingshot for Playing Angry Birds

    Gear  /  Other
    Hideaki Matsui and Andrew Spitz, students at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, built a Super Angry Birds desktop slingshot controller as project for their Haptic (tactile feedback) technology class.
    "Super Angry Birds is a force feedback USB controller for Angry Birds that simulates the feeling of a slingshot. All the controls found in the game are available in this device. You can control the pull, the angle, and of course trigger the special power of the bird. We hacked a motorized fader found in audio mixing consoles to simulate the force you would feel when using a slingshot.
    We programmed in Max/MSP and Arduino. For controlling the hardware, we used an Arduino-based microcontroller called Music & Motors developed by CIID."
