This Little Device Will Turn Your iPhone Into A Gameboy

More than 600 million smartphone and tablet owners use their devices to play games. So developers in Los Angeles have designed a case that adds the iconic directional arrows, plus the A and B buttons, from the Nintendo Game Boy to an iPhone. 

Called Smart Boy, the attachment also lets gamers play their existing Game Boy and Game Boy Color games cartridges on their Apple handset.

Los Angeles-based Hyperkin has designed a case that adds the iconic directional arrows, plus the A and B buttons from the Nintendo Game Boy, to an iPhone. It was originally an April Fool's joke, but the popularity and demand for a real product was so high the firm has announced plans to sell it

The case was created by independent video game hardware developers Hyperkin. 

It was originally devised as part of an April Fool's joke, but the popularity and demand for a real product was so high the company has announced plans to sell a consumer version.

In a press release, Hyperkin's product developer Chris Gallizzi said: 'We wanted to create a retro device that can be easily adapted into any modern gamer's arsenal of devices.'

He continued that the Smart Boy will come in the classic '80s grey', with more colours to follow.
