Hacked 'Gameboo' handheld plays the games you grew up with

YouTube user LXL15 spent a period of eight months hacking a Game Boy and fitting it with a Dingoo A330 game emulator to create a new handheld console capable of playing games from platforms such as the Game Boy Advance, SNES, NES, Neo Geo and the Game Boy.

The "Gameboo" features the original Game Boy casing; however, it is modified to include extra buttons, a 2.8 inch color screen, 4GB of internal memory, TV-out ports, an MP3 player and a rechargeable lithium ion battery.

A thorough breakdown of the creation process behind this device is available here.
