The 'PocketSprite tiny Game Boy' is an amazing key chain that gives players the chance to relive their childhoods. The original version of the PocketSprite came in the form of DIY kit, but this latest iteration is more polished, and comes in both DIY and pre-built versions. With a built-in emulator, the PocketSprite is capable of playing classic Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Sega Master System, and Game Gear games. That being said, the device is built with an open source engine giving players the choice to load whatever they want on it.

The PocketSprite tiny Game Boy features an OLED screen, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capability, a rechargeable battery and a built in speaker. The entire system is powered off a dual core, 240 MHz ESP32 chip, and come equipped with 520 KB of RAM. The Wi-Fi capability is used to connect with a computer, and is how users can easily upload games onto the interface. The PocketSprite tiny Game Boy is currently being sold through crowdfunding, and hopes to ship out by mid-April.
