iPad 2 Game Boy case

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.

Nintendo Game Boy Tube Dress

Posted in Apparel by Reuben Drake on August 1st, 2011

Here’s a great dress for the geek girl in your life. These tube dresses will make you look like a life-size Nintendo Game Boy. Each dress is made from a jersey knit fabric, in colors that match the Nintendo Game Boy.

You even get the felt A/B buttons, as well as Start and Select, but you might get slapped if you get too button happy and touch the wrong area. It was actually sold yesterday, but Etsy shop HereandThereVintage will continue to offer some pretty cool clothing just like this one.

New Game Boy emulator for Windows Phone 7 coming

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on January 24th, 2011

Samuel Blanchard is showing off a Game Boy Pocket Color emulator for Windows Phone 7. That’s right, the Windows Phone 7 platform will soon let you play all of the old classics that you love from the Nintendo device.

The app doesn’t yet come with flash RAM management and backup features, so it won’t be good to play a game like Pokemon with this, though games like Tetris will be good. We love us some old school Nintendo.

Concept Game Boy iPhone Case

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2011

Last week at CES 2011 case makers Incipio showed off an awesome looking conceptual Game Boy iPhone case. That’s the good news. It’s adorable right? Well, the bad news is that due to copyright concerns Incipio has no plans to ever bring the Game Boy iPhone case to market.

The Incipio iPhone case is fully detailed with button color, texture, and placement that’s nearly identical to Nintendo’s original Game Boy. That’s what makes it awesome, but it is also what makes it a problem apparently. The idea was to show what the company can do. They now have our attention.

Game Boy with a Game Boy Advance inside

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2010

A game Boy with a Game Boy inside? It’s like a modern day version of one of those Russian nesting dolls. It’s mind-boggling. The device uses the chassis of an original Game Boy to hold the guts of a Game Boy Advance.

We have no idea why the creator undertook this mod, but we love it. This mod even features a rechargeable battery. We aren’t sure where the shoulder buttons are located. Pretty awesome mod.

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.

Calculator Boy: A backwards mod

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 28th, 2010

This modder is doing it all wrong. You are supposed to make something that looks like business, but is really a toy. Not something like looks like a toy, but is really all about business. But still, we can’t help but love this one. It’s a mod fit for math nerds and gaming geeks.

Most calculators are boring, but not this one. What we have here is a traditional calculator that looks like a Game Boy. How awesome is that? We love how it opens on the side. If only I could buy it.

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.

Game Boy iPhone case

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on July 6th, 2009

Game Boy iPhone caseIf you believe that the iPhone is all set to become the new platform for portable gaming, why not dress it up appropriately, with a retro gaming classic? It’s a Game Boy on the outside and an iPhone on the inside.

Plus, it’s ironic. And adorable. And protective. And only $15. Seriously, if you call yourself a geek, you have to own this. Or the Playstation version. Your iPhone will suffer an identity crisis and may even start displaying in monochrome.

Ti-boy: Ti-84 calculator Game Boy emulator

Posted in Calculators by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2009

Ti-boy: Ti-84 calculator Game Boy emulatorAre you a fan of Texas Instruments’ graphing calculators? Well, now the TI-83+SE, TI-84+ and TI-84+SE calculators can do more than make calculations. Now they can play Nintendo Game Boy games thanks to Brendan Fletcher’s emulator known as TI-Boy SE.

It runs on TI’s Z-80 based graphing calculators thanks to similarities between the CPUs of the two systems. The emulator includes three zoom modes, two sprite tracking modes, grayscale or black-and-white palettes, two-channel sound and even the ability to save and load games. For now, only Tetris, Zelda: Link’s Awakening and Kirby and homebrew titles are supported, but I’m sure it will get better.

Horizontal Game Boy Clone

Posted in Handheld Entertainmnet by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2009

Horizontal Game Boy CloneSomebody loves the Gameboy so much that they took it from vertical to horizontal. It’s still fat, but a little more sexy. The knock-off supposedly has a sharper image than the original. Sadly, details are scant on this baby.

All we really know is that it showed up in a Photobucket set. If you’re nostalgic and like your GB wide rather than tall, you’ll have to scour the knock-off district of the internet in search of one. Then tell us where we can get one.

PediSedate: A Game Boy accessory that sedates children

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on April 15th, 2009

PediSedate: A Game Boy accessory that sedates childrenWhat you are looking at is a Game Boy hooked up to a nitrous oxide machine, so that this child can be sedated. It’s called the PediSedate and it’s probably a really bad idea.

The PediSedate was designed for use by dentists. Apparently they got bored with putting people under the normal way. The idea is to distract kids with video games while they are drugged for root canal surgery and such. That doesn’t seem creepy at all.

DSi to get Virtual Console for Game Boy games?

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2009

Nintendo planning its own Dsi App Store?The Wii has a Virtual Console that lets you download games from the NES, SNES, etc. But there are no Game Boy games. That could be because they were saving them for the Nintendo DSi.

A rumour on game site Kombo seems to confirm that thinking. Apparently at a recent event for Club Nintendo members, it was announced that the DSi would be getting its own Virtual Console. Where you could buy Game Boy & Game Boy Advance titles. The games would be saved to an SD card and would at first be limited to first-party Nintendo titles.

Working Game Boy costume plays Tetris

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2009


This guy decided to turn himself into a Game Boy. He used a bunch of cardboard and a laptop is hidden inside that controls the screen. As you might expect and as he states himself, it’s a pretty fragile setup, but well worth it.

It even has the sound effects. The sad thing is that while in the Game Boy suit he can’t play himself. He can only watch others enjoy a game of Tetris. Pretty cool costume. You have to love Game Boy a whole lot to turn yourself into a walking handheld.

Game Boy bricks might help your resale value

Posted in Home,Nintendo by Conner Flynn on January 28th, 2008

Game Boy bricks
With the housing market being what it is, homes need all the help they can get. Anything to add some value, should you want to sell down the road. So, why not get some of these Game Boy bricks and redo a garden path in the backyard.

These are the brainchild of a Denmark man who wanted to add some gaming to his architecture. You have to admit, they look pretty nice after they’ve been in place and aged a bit. Here I thought the actual Game Boy was about as useful as a brick these days. The guy put alot of time into perfecting these. At first they would explode in the oven, but he finally got it right. If you have a gaming themed home, why not go the extra mile and sink some of these into your dirt.
