This Modular DIY Game Boy Is The Ultimate Retro Gaming Handheld

Jul 8, 2019

Category: Tech

Although it wasn’t the first handheld gaming device, Nintendo’s Game Boy certainly revolutionized the category — bringing console-style gaming to a portable format. It’s been so impactful, in fact, that it is still inspiring the modern, high-tech devices of today. That certainly includes this GameShell modular handheld console you see before you.

From an outside perspective, the GameShell looks a lot like dozens of retro portable consoles that have come before it. But this one actually has some beefed-up, unique features. For instance, it comes as a modular DIY kit — meaning you get to put it together yourself at home. And once it’s up and running, it benefits from a powerful quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU and Mali GPU, which together give it the ability to emulate games from the Atari, NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, and even games as advanced as those from the PlayStation 1. It also boasts expandable microSD storage, the option for HDMI big-screen output, and has a respectable 1,200 mAh rechargeable battery. Get your hands on one today for $159.
