Hyperkin Game Boy for iPhone 6

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Tech

We stumbled across this gadget yesterday, but seeing that it was April Fools’ Day, we didn’t even bother reading too much into it. Well it turns Hyperkin really is working on a device that will easily turn your iPhone into a Game Boy.

Taking a page right out of Think Geek’s book, Hyperkin designer Chris Gallizi took to Reddit with the images yesterday, and planned on passing it by as nothing more than a prank product (in reality he was testing the response). To no one’s surprise, the positive feedback was through the roof, and now Galizzi says the product is a green light. The premise is simple; the brand will be designing it for both iPhone and Android powered devices, letting you play Nintendo Game Boy cartridges right on your smartphone. No word on the official release date, but we imagine more details will surface sooner rather than later.
