TokyBirdTokymaker take on Flappy Bird
The TokyBird is a rendition of the popular mobile game Flappy Bird. The TokyBird uses similar game functions as Flappy Bird, but in this game, you have to flap your wings to make the bird fly!

Who doesn’t know the legendary flappy bird? Well, we had to bring it to TokyLand too!
Here is this catchy game coming with a nice and interactive twist: Real wings! this way we play and do exercise at the same time to keep mama and daddy happy 😉
Materials & Tools
Learn to code your own prototypes using the simple visual coding interface and just one finger and program it without installing software or connecting cables. Understand the principles of operating system electronics connecting in the most intuitive way, a large variety of sensors and actuators.
1 meter Cable Wires
Cable wires are wires covered in a casing. The cable wires carry electrical currents.
Tilt sensors and inclinometers generate an artificial horizon and measure angular tilt with respect to this horizon.
Heavy-duty paper with multiple layers to create durability, but also maintaining foldability. Cardboard usually made of a corrugated fiberboard sandwiched between two flat layers of paper.
Also known as a retractable blade knife is a great tool to cut cardboard or paperboard.
A stapler is a device that uses staples to fasten things together, usually sheets of paper.

Step 1: Download and print the TokyBird templates.
Step 2: Cut out the shapes onto cardboard.
Step 3: Bend the Wings so that the cardboard has shape.
Step 4: Staple the WingFront and WingBack together.
Line the wings up before stapling. Make sure that you have a wing for your left and right hand. While stapling, keep testing that your hand still fits into the slot. If it doesn’t try to adjust and bend the cardboard so that it does.
Note: Do not staple all the way around and leave enough space for your hand to fit through and hold the wings.
Step 5: Assemble the TokyHolder.
Step 6: Slide the Tokymaker into the TokyHolder.
Step 7: Connect the sensors.
