Digital video games which were once only for nerds and geeks have gone mainstream. We all love video games, but there’s just something magical about a game in real life.
After the explosion of Flappy Bird, Fawn Qiu made a real life version in a box at the Tribeca Hack-athon using just an Arduino, two servo motors, a reed switch, and some magnets.
Her real life version–inspired by the classic Mario in a box game–became an instant hit. Video demonstrating the game has gone viral online with over 1.4 million views!
