At Rovio HQ in Espoo, Finland, we get a sneak peek at “Bad Piggies,” where the egg-gobbling (now likable) swine rule the roost and not an Angry Bird is in sight. “We consider this the launch of a new franchise,” Rovio’s Petri Jarvilehto tells Fast Company.

The swine are stranded on a desert island and have to build vehicles and contraptions to make their way to the delicious eggs that they can’t seem to get enough of. Though there is a three-star mechanic at work, there are no birds in sight, and the pigs are bouncy, jovial, and downright likable—a far cry from the snorting, antagonizing characters from the Angry Birds installments.

Great concept, though I think it would play better on Xbox Kinect.

Angry Birds USB Slingshot
Think Angry Birds should be a sport? So do these guys, and they’re creating real equipment to compete with. Their USB-powered slingshot mimics the action of playing on the touch screen to give you total control. The design is still in prototype, but check out the full specs here.
