This Flappy Bird In A Box Hack Is Way More Impressive Than The Game

The death of Flappy Bird has brought out more ridiculous knock-offs than should be permissible by the standards of the Geneva Convention. It’s gotten so bad Apple and Google decided to ban them, but the one Flappy Bird knock-off we’d love to play isn’t on the App Store either, it’s in a box.

Fawn Qiu decided to make an IRL version of Flappy Bird using nothing more than a box, an Arduino sensor, two servo motors, a reed switch, magnets and of course, some Flappy Bird artwork.

Players control the bird with the reed switch on the left and if you fail to make it past a set of pipes the box closes.

Check out the video of the project below:
