Burger King Game Boy toy turned into real retro handheld

On the flip of the Millennium, Burger King handed out cute tiny Recreation Boy Colours with pretend Pokémon cartridges. Sixteen years later and a modder, armed with a Raspberry Pi Zero, has turned one of many dummy models right into a working console. Paired with a two-inch show from Adafruit and Retropie’s software program emulator, the title will play Recreation Boy Shade and Advance titles with its now working buttons. Though, in fact, since there’s solely A&B, you may wrestle with titles that want the shoulder bumpers too. It isn’t the primary time that we have seen Raspberry Pi’s tiny board getting used on this method, with a full-measurement Recreation Boy being was an emulator earlier this yr. Given what number of damaged handhelds can be found on eBay, we think about everybody’s going to dedicate a weekend to constructing their very own.
