This modified Game Boy will warm the cockles of any retro gamer's heart.

A clever modder has turned an existing Game Boy into a jack of all trades device (lovingly titled the Gameboo) that will give your smartphone a run for its money. The most obvious change is the extra buttons inserted into the case to make more modern games playable. The old green screen on the original model has been replaced with a vibrant 2.8 color screen.

What does this all mean? It means that not only does this modified Game Boy still play old Game Boy cartridges, but also (through emulation) Super Nintendo, Nintendo, Game Boy Advance, Neo Geo games, and more. Not only that, but the unit is a capable FM radio, e-reader, MP3 player with 4 GB of storage, and features a rechargeable lithium ion battery and USB connectivity.
