Angry Birds USB controller designed for student project

Check out this physical controller designed by students at Copenhagen Institute of Interactive Design for use with Angry Birds. As you can see, it tilts, pulls, fires and totally belongs in my house.

Setting aside for the moment that it's a bit silly to design a peripheral for a game where the primary selling point is being able to play it anywhere at any time, I might actually be motivated to soldier through an entire round of levels in Angry Birds if I had this thing to play with.
