Voted as one of the most addictive game for 2014, Flappy Bird is still a game that i have not played yet, although it seems that and FPGA has!
A team of 3 (Ackerley Tng, Ankur Thakkar and Saisrinivasan Mohankumar) at Dr. Bruce Land 18s advanced microcontroller design class at Cornell Unniversity decided to build an automated Flappy Bird player using a camera, an FPGA and a penny.
After a whole semester working on the automation, the team managed to get a 10% success on getting through the first pipe and a 1% of getting thought the second pipe. With a high score of 3 it seems that the team has a lot to do for the next semester.
Lets all wish a good luck. Check out their page here.
