Flappy Bird has been killed in the original game form but it has spawned a number of knock offs that are worthy of attention at even the Geneva Convention. The number of replica games has gotten so out of control that Google and Apple have decided to ban them. However, there is one that seems worth all the attention. It doesn’t come in the form of an app that you can download but it is made from scratch and is housed in a box.
The maker, Fawn Qiu, has made the game using nothing other than a box, reed switches, servo motors, magnets and a lot of artwork. All that players have to do is to control the bird using the reed switches to move it either to the left or to the right to move past pipes. The boxes automatically closes shut when you fail to make it past the obstacles. Gear up!… Read the rest
