The Finnish gaming company that made the eponymous Angry Birds title _ with more than 1 billion downloads to date _ is now spreading its wings beyond the virtual world. It has already launched plush toys, lunch boxes, clothing, stationery, food and drink items, a Formula 1 driver sponsorship deal and a jewelry line with the Angry Birds theme. Rovio this week announced it would launch an Angry Birds-branded debit card in Russia in partnership with a local bank.
