Angry Birds was designed to be played on a device that fits in your pocket, so playing the game projected on a wall doesn’t exactly feel natural. Throw a life-size slingshot into the mix, though, and things really get zany. The slingshot was on hand at the University of Queensland (Australia) last night, and had apparently been “months in the making.” Details are scant, so we’re not sure exactly how the slingshot communicates with the game, but however it works, it appears able to do its thing fairly well — with only a brief delay after release. This slingshot appearance may be a one-time deal, so if you want to try flicking the bird on the big screen, Angry Birds for Chrome (and a mouse) may be your best option for now.

Finnish developer Rovio Mobile marked yet another victory in its ongoing plan to bring the incredibly popular Angry Birds to every possible electronic device that human beings use, announcing during Google’s I/O 2011 Conference that Angry Birds is available as an in-browser application. Like … right now!

Like the Android version, it’s free-to-play and microtransaction-supported, but unlike the Android version, a handful of web-exclusive features have been added. Notably, “Chrome bombs” and some “exclusive Chrome levels” are both new additions — unsurprisingly, the pay-per-use “Mighty Eagle” will return. And yes, you can play the game in browsers other than Chrome (and in operating systems other than Chrome OS).

We’ve been jonesing to see a life-size version of Angry Birds since Neil Patrick Harris teased us with his chicken catapult during the VGAs. Yesterday on Conan, we got our wish — not with real-life poultry, mind you, but with bird-shaped balls and really unstable Ikea furniture.

Here’s one of CES 2011′s less technical, but most awesome, revelations: Mattel is working on a board game adaptation of Rovio’s mobile hit, Angry Birds. The game looks like a pretty authentic recreation of its source material; players draw “Mission Cards” depicting structures of bricks and pigs, which they then build using plastic models included in the game. Oh, and then they shoot birds at those structures using a tiny slingshot. That part is pretty integral to the whole experience, apparently.

The game will cost $14.99 when it launches worldwide this May. Even if you don’t want the board game, $14.99 is a perfectly reasonable price for a tiny catapult. Just think of all the tiny things you can terrorize with a catapult of that size!

Let’s be honest: you can never get enough of Angry Birds, but for those wandering around Guangzhou, China, you might be able to get your fix at this arcade booth. Like the game itself, there’s an actual slingshot for firing your enraged fowls at a bunch of plush doll piggies, except there are no special abilities like explosion or splitting — maybe the next version will take care of that, unless Rovio Mobile decides it’s game over for these guys.
