As part of the Arduino 10th birthday celebration, enthusiast "Baoshi" has created a credibly reproduction of the popular mobile phone game "Flappy BIrds". Some effort has been expended in the creation, by using a small Arduino-compatible board and a colour display unit, the project is small and playable.
The user-interface matches the simplicity of the game, and instead of using buttons an infra-red distance sensor relays the position of the player's hand to control the subject of the game. A demonstration is shown in the following video:
It may seem complex, however you can make your own, as Baoshi has provided all the required code and PCB files on his github page. And for more, we're on facebook, Google+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.
If you're prototyping Arduino projects on solderless breadboards, blown the MCU on your board, or making your own - save time and hassle with our new ATmega328 microcontroller pre-loaded with the Arduino Uno bootloader:
It's the same one as found on our Eleven, KitTen and the original Arduino Uno, plus it has a very useful pinout sticker attached to save confusion when wiring it up. So for more information and to order, click here. And we also sell the stickers!
