Playing classic Nintendo games, especially those of the Game Boy variety, should not be a strange experience to say the least, as there are many different emulators that are out there in the market. Wermy, however, has a different take on the original Game Boy – as he came up with a Game Boy Zero mod that you can see above.

Making use of a Raspberry Pi Zero (hence seeing the connection with the mod’s name), in addition to a modified game cartridge and a fair amount of drilling in order to emulate classic NES, SNES and Game Boy titles (all the way up to the Game Boy Advance), this is one mod that will preserve majority of the original Game Boy’s look and feel. There are two more buttons added to the original A and B pressers, in addition to a 3.5” color display that brings it up to par with the more modern Nintendo machines.

Basically, it does not require Tony Stark level genius to create this, but it is still an effort that is worth to be commended. It requires a Raspberry Pi Zero, an SD memory card slot within the cartridge itself, and a lithium-ion battery which will then be integrated into the shell of a Game Boy.
