We love Recreation Boy (and Recreation Boy-shaped) {hardware} mods round right here, and this new undertaking — a Recreation Boy “like no different” — is price a glance. Creator Obirux imagined what an authentic Recreation Boy with the GBA type issue may appear like, after which started working.

This video is a handy guide a rough overview of the “panorama” Recreation Boy prototype, which was created with two Recreation Boy shells, different authentic Nintendo elements, and a modified DMG IPS package — so the general design is spot-on, and the video games themselves look sharp, too.

As iconic as the unique Recreation Boy appears and feels — and even with numerous fond reminiscences coloring my perspective to today — I’m certain my fingers would get alongside so significantly better with this GBA-style handheld. There’s a passionate marketplace for customized handhelds, and I’ll be curious to see if anybody else follows swimsuit (or if this creator decides to supply a mod package).

Nintendo followers would pay a reasonably penny for this handheld.

The design is a successful combo, however Obirux isn’t at the moment promoting “panorama” kits. That stated, the London-based modder does have a store with numerous neat modified handhelds.

“The retro gaming neighborhood retains me buzzing and I can’t thank them sufficient for pushing tech and design to new and thrilling ranges,” Obirux stated on their web site.

Whether or not it’s a gradual or quick gaming information day, tasks like this give me life.
