This Robot plays Flappy Bird, and it's pretty good too!
We’d like to think the Flappy Bird mania is dying down, but we’re not sure. Just a couple of days ago we found out that someone had sold an iPad Mini preloaded with the game for $8,000, so crazy people are still crazy it seems. And it’s in the midst of all this craze that we now turn our attention to Liu Yang and Shi Xuekun, two developers from the Shaanxi province of China, who’ve created a robotic contraption that plays the game, and plays is well. Using a webcam, the swing arm of an old hard drive and a stylus, this machine manages to blaze through the pipes like nobody’s business.
The point? Really, there isn’t. This is just a fun project and maybe a demonstration of skill from two guys who claim they took only four days to build and code the whole thing. Check the video out to see how it fares.
This is about a Flappy Bird playing Robot. Frankly you would be crazy NOT to share it with your buddies!
