What's In The Box?! Oh, It's A Playable Flappy Bird.

The original Flappy Bird may be gone, but it continues to live on in all sorts of tributes—and not all of these tributes are digital. Take this awesome cardboard box contraption, for example—it's a machine that lets you play Flappy Bird 'in real life.' It's also just as tough as the original Flappy Bird. Excellent!


The "box version" of Flappy Bird was made in a weekend hackathon by Fawn Qiu, who used an Arduino, two servo motors, reed switch, and magnets to make the machine.

The way the box closes when you lose is kind of charming, no?
