Play Angry Birds With a Real USB Sling Shot

I know, I know, this is not about iPhones, but you can’t deny that Angry Birds has become an international hit, because of the iPhone. It has since been ported to other operating systems, mobile and desktop. A company called mBed has created a USB sling shot to work with your PC or Mac, to really play Angry Birds.

The device features an accelorometer and a rubber stretch sensor to control the sling shot in the Angry Birds game. Now you can really get the feeling of flinging the birds accross the landscape to get those darn pigs.

Sadly, mBed doesn’t mentions plans to bring this to market. It was more of a project to show how easy and inexpensive it is to create a simple USB device. If you want to make your own, they have posted full instructions, code, and materials needed on their website.
