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.

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.

Condoms for old school gamers

Posted in Humor by Conner Flynn on July 4th, 2010

Condoms for old school gaming nerds seems like an oxymoron. On one hand, the packaging and concept is completely awesome. On the other, it’s a condom product designed for those who will likely never use one.

Each package features different classic Game Boy games, similar to those you grew up with. Classics like “The Long End of Zelda,” “Dong,” “Bone Zone 2,″ “Super Mario Land of Love,” “Sextris,” or “Donkey Shlong.” Seriously.

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.

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.

11 questionable video game tattoos

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on June 7th, 2009

Video Game TattoosWe thought we would take a look at some questionable gaming tattoos. The kind that are either a bad idea or not well thought out, or just plain wrong. Gamers love getting tattoos of their favorite characters, but sometimes, they just need a friend to stop them from making a horrible mistake.

Friends don’t let friends make bad tattoo decisions. Unless both of you have been drinking heavily anyway. Some of the images are NSFW. Click through to check them all out.

I hope this is the new iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on April 1st, 2009

I hope this is the new iPhoneNot that there’s any chance in hell of getting a new iPhone that looks like an old school gameboy, but I’m hoping I can find me this cool case at least. Who cares if it cuts your screen size?

It’s what you might expect if Steve Jobs was a Nintendo fanboy. Someone somewhere probably made this themselves. Another cool wrap that would look good over your iPhone is a Vintage Walkman. I have no idea where to get one. I just thought it was cool.

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.

Super Mario Land etched on an Eee PC

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2009

Super Mario Land etched on an Eee PCForget tattooing yourself up with robots. Tattoo your laptop instead. The guy who did this is obviously a big fan of Super Mario Land on the Game Boy. We have to give him some props here. The fact that he actually went to the trouble of laser-etching every level of the game in sequence across his Eee PC is sheer brilliance. It leaves us drooling and wanting to etch something, anything, real bad.

According to Chris, it’s creator, “Last night I laser-etched the top of my Eee PC with the complete level maps of Super Mario Land (on the Game Boy). Everything from the familiar layouts of 1-1 to the climactic battle with Tatanga in the clouds at the end of 4-3 is represented in the etching. This was made possible with the laser cutter at NYC Resistor in Brooklyn, where you can go to get your laptop etched too! I set the laser in raster mode at 70% speed and 40% power to achieve this look.”

Brando’s 7-in-1 USB charging cable handles everything

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2009

Brando’s 7-in-1 USB charging cable handles everythingBrando’s ingenious 7-in-1 USB Charging Cable is like a gadget charging orgy. It provides power for your PSP, DS, DS Lite, DSi and Game Boy Advance handhelds, and all it costs is a USB port and $7. Sure, this cable is a Brando product, and could possibly fry all of your well loved game handhelds, due to it’s questionable craftsmanship, but what is life without some risk.

At $7, what the hell. If it explodes, you’ll have some new parts for a future DIY project. I’ll put it to you, valued readers of the ‘Brick, would you trust Brando’s latest charging gadget with your handhelds?

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.

Teachermate computer launches in Chicago

Posted in Handheld Entertainmnet by Conner Flynn on March 13th, 2008

Teachermate educational computer
This blue Gameboy type device comes from Innovations for Learning and is designed for schools. It’s got the typical directional buttons, a few other buttons, a 2.5-inch LCD, USB sync, SD card storage, AC/USB charging, and a 3.5-hour battery life.

Supposedly it has “complete reading and math curriculum that is aligned with all of the major reading and math programs,” inside of the device. The idea is to help substitute the learning that Kindergarten through second grade students already get. The company is non-profit, so they only charge for the cost of manufacturing the device, which is $50. However, the reading and math programs will cost $20 per student. They will start rolling them out at 500 Chicago elementary schools.
