The Arduino-powered "Flappy Bird" Game

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 facebookGoogle+, 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!
