"Hdmyboy" Turns GameBoy Games Into High-Def Goodness
The original GameBoy was revolutionary.
Let's say you've got a strong nostalgic streak, but hunching over that little green screen just seems ridiculous. Well, brothers Zane Amiralis and Joshua de Haan may have the solution.
It's a Kickstarter campaign that's gaining a fair amount of traction: It's the "hdmyboy," which allows original GameBoy games to be viewed and played on a separate monitor with 720p or even 1080p visuals.
The hdmyboy is removable and doesn't wreck the original unit. When installed, players can utilize the GameBoy's standard buttons or they can use a modified NES controller. Furthermore, you won't be stuck with that green screen, as they plan to offer "lots of color palettes." Just remember that the project focuses exclusively on the original GameBoy; future iterations of the handheld won't be supported.
If they hit their €65,000 funding goal, the final version of the product will be available next year. Let's hope they make it!
