Dings and Dents from SparkFun

So,

A little while ago I bought 11 boards from SparkFun from Dings and Dents for 25 cents a pop. Why? Well I was curious and printed PCB’s usually run at least a dollar or so. At the same time I got a bunch of Dings and Dents sensors or something therein.

Those super cool large proto boards worth about 4-5 for bucks a pop and something called a wheel encoder I haven’t had time to look up.

So, I wanted to take this up a level. Last week I bought 200 more! What did I get this time?

It has been a few busy days, and Flippy Bird 3D seems to be starting its ramp-down. So what should I do to fill the time I wonder?

feature
In memory of my time crafting Secure AntiVirus Pro and Flippy Bird 3D, I spent a significant amount of time watching Netflix.

Specifically, Breaking Bad.

Well, what better way to honour the memory of a great TV show than to create… a Pinkman Soundboard!

Finally after 2 Years – Got a #1 Seller on BlackBerry

After 48 hours on BlackBerry, Flippy Bird 3d is doing quite well!

Get it here:

Yep, the downside – being a top seller usually only lasts a few days.

Well to celebrate – I am proud to announce I’ve added support for some Windows devices. And working on iOS.

And if you are worried I forgot about rewarding my BlackBerry fans – scratch that thought as I have weeks worth of updates coming for you peeps.

The game keeps getting better every day.

Download links below.

Well, what exactly is flapping brontosaurus?

Warning: Its not exactly safe for work!!! So you will need to click on more info to see the screenshots.

Essentially it is this : It is a brontosaurus in a field eating grass. You shake the device really fast to break him and beat the game.  And if you find the game too easy, touch the screen to turn off the lights and only shake his shadow!

This is one of those apps you want to install on your friends phone and leave it their for them to find it.

Today, I played a little game called Flappy Bird for iOS.

Cute, fun and addictive!  Then the developer announced they were pulling the game from platforms, with no intention of adding new ones.

So, what did I do about it?  In 8 hours, I built an entire Flappy Bird clone, feature complete, in a 3D environment with true physics, a score system that saves, and even animated many parts of the game.

I also submitted it to BlackBerry World.  Booyah!

This is still a very early beta, but it shows you the very unique touch controls class I built for AIR.

Unfortunately there are a bunch of latency issues to resolve still and it may require removal of music.  But it is a strong start to a fun game!  When the game becomes available in the next 24 hours or so, you can grab it from this link:
