Credit Card Sized Gameboy || The Arduboy

You can now get a Game Boy the size of a credit card

This is one for all the 90s kids who still pine for their Game Boy.

Someone’s recreated your favourite handheld gaming system, but instead of that grey brick, it now looks like a teeny tiny credit card.

The Arduboy has the same buttons and interface as a classic Nintendo Game Boy, and it lets you play, share and create your own 8-bit games.

For those wanting to remember their misspent youth, the console comes pre-loaded with games including Ardumon (looks suspiciously like Pokémon), Alien Attack (aka Space Invaders) and Maruino (Super Mario Bros.) You can download more games online for free.

Arduboy is powered by a DIY computing technology called Arduino, which means it’s easy to design your own games.

But, it’s not just about gaming. The $39 (£25) gadget is also an 8-bit synthesiser, a digital business card with your CV (fancy) or QR code. It can even be a remote control for your drone.

The little ‘Game Boy’ can be pre-ordered now on Kickstarter and has already far exceeded its fundraising goal. It’s now at $273,472 (£176,000) versus an original target of $25,000 (£16,000) with 21 days to go.

Arduboy’s creator Kevin Bates says of the overwhelming support for his design: ‘A year ago I put the prototype up on YouTube and it got nearly half a million views and I got thousands of emails. So I quit my day job and moved to China [to develop the product].’

Arduboy: A reminder of simpler times.
