Guitar boy

Is it a guitar that’s also a Game Boy, or a Game Boy that’s also a guitar? We just don’t know.

This is a thing of beauty. Best of all, for me, is the way the A and B buttons don’t just control the Game Boy; they’re also volume and tone dials.

The build uses the guts of a real guitar. Fibbef, the maker, who created the Guitar Boy for the BitFix Gaming 2015 Game Boy Classic build-off, built his own guitar body with a screen and rammed a Raspberry Pi running the RetroPie games emulator in there, ending up with a functional guitar that’s also a functional (giant) hand-held gaming device.

If you want to see more of the build, Fibbef documented it in this thread at the BitFix forums.


The post Guitar boy appeared first on Raspberry Pi.
