Turn Your Smartphone Into a Real Game Boy With This Brilliant Case
Not all '90's toys need a revival. Adults aren't begging for a modern Furby. But we sure as hell want a new Game Boy.
And we got one. Kind of.
It's not a standalone Game Boy — you'll need an Android phone to complete the 8-bit dream — but Hyperkin's Smart Boy Developer Kit is a phone case, plastic buttons and all, that is compatible with both Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridges.
It's definitely a piece of nostalgic tech — it doesn't ditch the classic tactile buttons for a touchscreen — meaning this will probably appeal to a lot of grown-ass adults with memories of pounding on those buttons in the backseat of the car. This is not a children's toy.
You can order the Smart Boy Developer Kit on Hyperkin's website now for $59.99. It's expected to ship in early December 2016.
