GameBoy resurrected from the dead, with the power of the sun

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2011

When is a dead Gameboy not a dead Gameboy? When this guy gets hold of it. Andrew had a damaged GameBoy and much like Dr, Frankenstein, he didn’t just give up. He laid his monster on a table one dark and stormy night, opened a solar powered garden lamp and used the photovoltaic cells on the GameBoy.

The storm subsided and the clouds parted. This was followed by shouts of “It’s alive!” The GameBoy now soaks up the sun’s rays and stays on forever, without running out of energy, as long as the sun shines. It uses two AA rechargeable batteries that store all the energy it gets from the sun.

Portable Atari console the size of a Gameboy

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on June 27th, 2010

We love us some good old fashioned Atari mods around here and this is maybe the neatest we’ve seen in some time. This portable Atari is small enough to pass itself off as a Gameboy.

The core system is an Atari Flashback 2, an embedded system with a few built-in games. But without the cartridge slot it wouldn’t be the mod it is, allowing the owner to play any game he wants. Not sure about the color though. An Atari mod should be wood grain.

Gameboy goes Steampunk

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 24th, 2010

This just may be the most awesome Gameboy mod ever. The steampunk Game Boy. The ultimate in Victorian handheld gaming. Sure it looks awesome, but the modder also added a pro sound mod which increases the the output and changed the red LED light for an orange one.

It took only a week to complete the project, even though it looks like it took much longer. Awesome job. It looks like it was dug up from an archeological site.

Gameboy Advance cartridges turned into 4GB flash drives

Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on January 22nd, 2010

I was never a big fan of the Gameboy Advance so I don’t have any cartridges lying around. But if I did, I would be turning them into flash drives, just like this one from etsy seller 8BitMemory. That cartridge above looks awesome as a functional USB flash drive.

Currently 8bit has several for sale including Metroid, Super Mario Advance, and Mario Vs. Donkey Kong. All the converted cartridges have a 4GB capacity and they retail for $39.99 each.

Make your own open source Gameboy

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on October 28th, 2008

open source GameboyGameboys are cheap these days. You remember Gameboy. That monochrome handheld with the sort of greenish urine colored background. You can get one for about $20. But why not make your own? Some guy named Matt decided to build an “open source Gameboy” called Gamepack, using off-the-shelf parts, including an Arduino microprocessor. The Arduino providse the brains, while the 128×128 TouchShield Stealth color OLED touchscreen takes care of the rest. An Inputshield board provides a tiny joystick that even sports rumble, with control buttons and a flat Lithium battery pack.

Lucky for you the Gamepack system is available in kit form so you can build one yourself. Thing is, at the moment, the Gamepack only runs some rudimentary homebrew demo code, but the idea is that others will contribute more advanced games, or maybe even a Nintendo emulator. It’s steep at $249, but a pretty cool project.

Gameboy boots for the gaming Disco Stu

Gameboy boots for the gaming Disco Stu
These gameboy boots certainly make a fashion statement. Something about how everything you love dies. Like Disco and Nintendo’s handheld, for instance. So why not combine the two in a space age Disco look and hit the dance floor?

These boots were designed by Helen Red Richards back in 2001 for a Nintendo campaign. Apparently the Japanese love them and wear them all the time. And why not? Nothing wrong with looking like a space cowboy. Plus, you’ll always have a pair of Gameboys handy for you and a friend.

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2011

The iPad 2 is one of the most beloved gadgets, so is the original gameboy. Put them together and you have something ultra awesome. This iPad 2 Game Boy case is one of the coolest cases we’ve seen. And we’ve seen plenty.

No release date yet and since Nintendo likes to go after Gameboy imitators, this may not be offered for long. We will have to wait and see what happens.

Game Boy iPhone 4 Case

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Reuben Drake on June 16th, 2011

This iPhone 4 case is one of the neatest Gameboy cases for the phone that we’ve seen yet. The Game Boy iPhone 4 case comes in several colors including yellow, orange, white, black, red and blue. This case hasn’t been officially licensed by Nintendo of course.

They are available for $8.90 each. Better grab one before Nintendo puts it’s foot down over this one. It’s one of the most realistic cases we’ve seen.

Tactile Stickers turn touchscreens into Gaming Controllers

Posted in gaming accessories by Conner Flynn on November 7th, 2010

If you have a smartphone like the iPhone, with a touchscreen, but miss tactile buttons when it comes to playing games, then check out the Tactile+Plus adhesives. They are stickers with raised bumps so you can feel them and press on them like a game controller.

You will no longer have to carry around a game pad adapter, since it’s on your phone already. The kit includes an 8-way circular control pad and 4 individual key buttons that mimic the Gameboy system.

Papercraft Game Boy looks authentic

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on March 21st, 2010

This Gameboy may look real right down to the screen color, but it isn’t. It’s made of paper, with a slot for a papercraft game cartridge as well. It’s the best looking gameboy you’ll never play. But you can still have some fun putting it together.

It comes from French graphic design duo Zim & Zou, who have paper cuts covering both bandaged hands just so they could bring you this magnificent sight. They did a great job. It looks amazing.

Game Boy hidden in a calculator

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 19th, 2009

Game Boy hidden in a calculatorThis is the best way to play video games while at school. Everyone thinks you are doing a complex math problem, but really you are getting your game on. The only problem is, you are going to be in trouble if you have an actual math problem to do.

This mod took it’s creator about 13 hours to complete, which is understandable. Most of that time was likely spent playing Mario games and Tetris. I hope the teacher doesn’t read this.

Seiko Clock and Takara have come up with a gadget that lets you have fish with zero maintenance. Sadly the animated fish look like they are being displayed on a Gameboy.
