As if you needed another an excuse to play Angry Birds. Check out this hand crafted NXP LPC11U24-powered slingshot that takes advantage of an embedded 3-axis Accelerometer and stretch sensor. It’s from Simon Ford and company over at mbed.org. Schematics and source code are available on their site. [via DroidGamers]
