This Brilliant Device Will Turn Your Phone Into A Fully-Functional Gameboy

Here’s some pretty amazing news that’s going to instantly bring you back to your childhood. It’s called the SmartBoy, currently being developed by Hyperkin, and it will turn your iPhone 6 Plus into a Gameboy (more devices will be compatible). The funny thing is, it actually started out as an April Fool’s’, but now it’s slated for release sometime in the near future.




According to Hyperkin, “It will also feature an eight-way D-pad; two action buttons; a start and select button; and an included battery that can be charged through the phone itself providing 5 hours of gameplay.” Basically, you place your phone into the device and then slide in your old Gameboy cartridge in the back….. your phones screen would then become whatever you’re playing.

Here’s how the design would work
