Flap to Freedom: Arduino powered game

Craft & Design Fun & Games Technology

This is some crazy chicken wing flappin’ action folks, and it looks like a lot of fun too! The system is powered by an Arduino and uses a hidden camera to analyze the players movement. There is a great flickr photo set of the build too!

Existing consumer toy chickens were hacked, removing all circuits before a custom circuit was designed that gave us control of legs, wings and beak. Arduino microcontrollers were used along with radio frequency modules to give wireless control of the chickens.
