This mutant Gameboy can play all Nintendo games from 16 bits down

The Gameboo is a bit of maker brilliance. The hero who runs Casing the Joint, eight months ago, set out on a project to rip out the viscera of an old Gameboy and rebuild it, stronger and faster. The new guts come from a Dingoo Technologies A330, a handheld system that supports a variety of emulators. So while the Gameboo looks like a Gameboy, it can play emulator ROMs for the NES, Super NES, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, and Game Boy Color. And it's got two extra face buttons and a color LCD screen. Also, it rules.
