Thanks to a modder, Nintendo’s Virtual Boy devices can now be played on the go

The modder, known as Shank, has created the new handheld. He’s best known for creating a wide range of custom hardware and specialises in making consoles portable.

A modder has turned Nintendo‘s infamous Virtual Boy console into a handheld device.

The handheld device features a controller port for the original Virtual Boy controller, HDMI output, USB C charging port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Alongside this, it features light-up LED buttons and an IPS display that uses button combinations to adjust the colour palette. It also has an RGB mode that cycles through colours.

Shank has designed other custom hardware in the past based on Nintendo hardware, including joy-cons for the Nintendo Switch made out of a Gamecube controller, and a portable Wii console.

The Virtual Boy, which originally released in 1992, is infamous amongst retro video game fans due to stereoscopic graphics making players dizzy and nauseous.

The console had a custom visor and red monochrome graphics which used parallax effects as well as the aforementioned stereoscopic visuals to create the illusion of 3D depth.

Because of the issues players had with the visuals, and accompanying poor sales performance, the console ceased distribution in 1996. Only 22 games were released, including 3D Tetris, Mario’s Tennis and Virtual Boy Wario Land.
