Back this on Kickstarter!
Not many people still have their original Gameboy but those that still do seem to love them(I know I do). There is a new Kickstarter projected named hdmyboy that is a hardware upgrade for your original Gameboy that provides your Gameboy with an HDMI output to plugin to your TV. Think of this as a modern Super Gameboy in HD.

"Last year Josh hacked a game boy classic so he could play it on an old computer monitor. By tapping into the digital signal deep within the game boy, he could generate amazingly crisp graphics. After playing some Mario, Tetris and Zelda we decided we just had to share this and take it to the next step.

So we spent the last 3 months building a prototype which supports full hd and makes it super easy for everyone to upgrade their game boys. Now it's time to find out how many people would like one so we can do a production run!

This is awesome. I can think of no practical modern use for it since emulators can already provide a better picture than this, but still. The ingenuity.

For people that love their Gameboy so much they want to give it a second life. It's like remodeling an old car, sure new ones exist but it's the grandeur and cool of the old that makes it worth it.

That said, emulators are great and just tonight enjoyed Links Awakening. Still looks good after this many years.

Links Awakening was a masterpiece.
