Texas Instruments’ graphing calculators are pretty nifty devices in their own right since they pack quite a punch underneath the hood, and the TI-83+SE, TI-84+ and TI-84+SE calculators can now do more than make sure your calculations are up to par – it allows you to enjoy Nintendo Game Boy games thanks to an emulator known as TI-Boy SE. It will run on TI’s Z-80 based graphing calculators courtesy to similarities between the two systems, where you can opt for three zoom modes, a couple of sprite tracking modes, grayscale or black-and-white palettes, two-channel sound and even the abilie to save and load games. At point of publishing, only Tetris, Zelda: Link’s Awakening and Kirby alongside homebrew titles are supported, but with Tetris alone and Zelda, you won’t need any other games for a long time to come, eh?
