Game Boy Adapter Mini PC Case

I didn’t realize how popular mini PC’s have gotten lately. Entire desktops with a Windows OS stuffed into a small case for a few hundred bucks, a bargain I would’ve jumped at a few times in the past.

Most cases are similar in shape and design to a Roku or Apple TV player, but seeing as they usually have ports on all 4 sides I was reminded of the Game Boy 4-player adapter, so I threw this concept together.

I’ve never used this Game Boy adapter before, but I was always fond of its design. I don’t think Nintendo has ever designed an ugly console or peripheral before. Well, maybe the original DS.

I really want this design, because the only cartridges I own are of the Game Boy variety, and I’d like to play them on an HD television. Right now my only option to play GB games via HDMI is the Retron 5, but that system is overkill for my needs.

I had somewhat of an ordeal acquiring a Game Boy Advance in the last few months. Rose Colored Gaming is sold-out (they can no longer acquire back-lit screens for GBAs), I also had no luck on Craigslist, a few used video games stores had nothing available. It was almost enough to make me quit!
