Just when you thought people were getting over Angry Birds, comes this, a super cool, force feedback USB controller for Angry Birds that literally simulates the feeling of a slingshot and comes complete with a TNT activation plunger. And as you can see, everything is controlled by the slingshot, you can control the power, the angle, and of course trigger the special power of the bird.

As you’d probably expect, its an Arduino powered device and programmed via Max/MSP as part of the class on Haptics at CIID. Very cool work from Hideaki Matsui and Andrew Spitz.
