We don’t know what’s up with you old-school gaming modders and your fascination with the Nintendo Game Boy as not too long ago, we saw the classic handheld combined with a Galaxy Nexus and Wii Remote innards. Now, another modder has used the Game Boy’s body to create quite the ultimate portable gaming device we’ve seen in a long time.

Dubbed “The Gameboo,” the modification completely replaces the innards of the Game Boy and replaces it with a Dingo Technologies A330. The Gameboo was painstakingly worked on for eight months, but the results, which you can see in the video embedded above, are amazing.

The Gameboo can play games for the 8, 16 and 32 bit gaming era, as long as the ROM is loaded onto the device. It has a 2.8″ color LCD screen, 4GB Internal Memory with a Mini SD card slot, TV-out to component, a 2.4GHz wireless receiver, a rechargeable Li-ion battery, and mini-USB to connect to a computer.

Eight months of dedication to anything is a pretty long time, but to see the results of that hard work turn into something like this is inspiring. If you have eight months to kill and want a Gameboo of your own, you can always go through the step-by-step process provided on the modder’s website.
