Awesome Game Boy clip-on for your iPhone 6

This could be the coolest thing we've seen in a while...

Retro games are pretty cool.

But you just don’t get that 90s feel of a Game Boy clutching at a wafer thin smartphone.

You’d have more joy playing Super Mario on a pebble.

Well, that’s about to change. Introducing the Smart Boy from Hyperkin.

It looks to have started with an actual April Fools’ Day prank – but with reaction from gamers it looks like the company could be ready to bring it out.

The idea is that you will be able to slot your iPhone 6 Plus into the Smart Boy and play Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridges on the screen. Other smartphones could soon follow.


It will be like the 90s never ended.
