You can play Angry Birds with your fingers or use a mouse on Facebook, but what about with an actual slingshot? mBed, a company that makes microcontrollers and accompanying software, has created a usb slingshot that can connect to a PC or Mac, which in turn can be used to play Angry Birds. Once plugged in, the slingshot is recognized as a usb mouse, and the accelerometer and rubber stretch sensor help translate these motions into mouse movements. Since the project was inspired as a demo to see how easy and inexpensive it is to build your own USB devices, you probably won’t be seeing this cool gizmo in stores anytime soon. But if you’re up to the challenge, you can check out the full instructions on how to build your own on their website. Video demo right after the break.

Microsoft’s Windows 8 Consumer Preview was released on Wednesday morning, and within a day, it had more than a million downloads. The upcoming OS is a complete departure from the Windows as we all know, with a Metro-style interface that relies heavily on touch and gestures. So how does Windows 8 running on a tablet stack up to iOS on an iPad? Quite well it seems. The Verge have posted a great video (above) showing the two OSes side-by-side, including a rundown of the features we can expect from Windows 8.
