DIY Device Celebrates Game Boy’s Silver Anniversary

Nintendo’s Game Boy turns 25 this year, and to celebrate, do-it-yourselfers can make their own version of the iconic gaming device using 3D printers and electronics. Electronics vendor Adafruit is selling the DIY Game Girl, also known as the PiGRRL, which works via a Raspberry Pi computer and a thin-film transistor touch screen. Utilizing designs provided by Adafruit, users print out the housing for the components, many of which come from Super Nintendo Entertainment Systems. The files that run on the device are available via Thingiverse, a website on which participants can discover, make, and share 3D printable items. (SlashDot)(Adafruit)
