Hackaday has an interesting writeup about a GBA emulator console based on the pi zero.

Most notably, he made a full replacement motherboard. It's not perfect because many parts must be harvested from a real GBA, but it's pretty good.

I wonder, is this a feasible piggy machine? Would it be worth it to produce some of his boards? … y-advance/

It would be cool to to just see a kitsch shell with buttons or something. I guess kitsch thinks so too?


Would love to have one of these, I have a spare clear gameboy shell, pi zero and tft gathering dust on my shelf and im one of these people that cant stomach tampering with the consoles i owned when i was a kid so i have left my GBA as it was meant to be. This would give me use for all the spare bits i got
