Reddit user ChaseLambeth did something interesting with an old toy from Burger King. He added a Raspberry Pi Zero board and has made it capable of playing games. The handheld being dubbed the Game Boy Color Nano has a two-inch LCD screen. It should be noted that, while ChaseLambeth began making this Game Boy, another individual had finished making three similar handhelds. Some of which are for sale.

The device uses an emulator called Retro Pie and can play a number of games. It can apparently play games from systems other than what the toy was based off of, such as Game Boy Advance titles. Though, I’m not sure how well that will work with only a D-pad and A & B buttons. Either way it’s definitely a nice handheld

About Walter P

Plays too much, but still has too many games to finish. Will play any type of game and will watch anything, so is of course not good at being productive. Loves anything crazy.
