This Phone Case Turns Your Android Smartphone Into A Classic Game Boy
By Sophia Hyder, 17 Jun 2016
Fans were left disappointed when Hyperkin’s Smart Boy was teased as an April Fool’s Joke in 2015, but they have a reason to dry their tears after an announcement at E3 2016.
The device, showcased this year with an updated design from last year’s hoax, turns your Android smartphone into a Game Boy. It’s time to start setting aside money for its possible release in December this year.
Using the Smart Boy is simple. Slip your phone into the ‘adapter’, and you’ll be allowed to play retro games with the button layout instead of a touch screen. There is even a slot at the back that allows you to insert classic Game Boy cartridges. This way, your smartphone will act as the display.
As of now, there is no talk of the Smart Boy being compatible with iOS. Loyal iOS fans, perhaps it’s time to jump ship to Android?
