FlappyBird and the Kinect v2

Have you ever played FlappyBird? Although very simple, the game is pretty addictive. The only thing that’s missing is that you still have to press buttons instead of “flapping” with your arms.

Fortunately, these times are over now. We created a controller so you can play the game by waving your arms. Have a look at the video:

Here’s what happens inside:

  • A Chrome browser plugin changes the appearance of the HTML5 game homepage
  • The plugin contacts a C# websocket server
  • The websocket server sends control signals (simple JSON) to the browser
  • The server does what it does using a sophisticated facts system
