Have you ever wished you could play all your favorite retro games on an original Game Boy? Ever tried to play Donkey Kong Country one? “But there aren’t enough buttons!” How naive of you, rhetorical person made up for the sake of this opening paragraph! Behold the Game Boy you never knew you needed more than anything else… until now.
Are you kept awake at night trying to imagine the inside of a Game Boy? Are you ridiculed by your friends for not knowing what 8-bit actually means? Rest easy, buckos. This video by JackTech dives into the heart of the Game Boy. Envelop yourself in its majesty and find out exactly what makes this revolutionary handheld system tick.
An Indie gaming company, RobotLovesKitty had the amazing idea to combine the Raspberry Pi’s RetroPie emulation project with a 3d printer to create a gameboy-like handheld that will play NES, SNES, Sega, Playstation 1, Nintendo 64, , x86 PC, Amiga, Sega Genesis, Turbo Grafix 16 and about 20 other formats. The Kickstarter still has a few weeks to go but has already reached its goal and the lower tiers are selling out fast! Get yours while you still can!
