While we have heard that the Game Boy could see an emulator being developed officially by Nintendo for mobile devices, here is a hardware upgrade for your old school portable console. First launched all the way back in 1989, the Game Boy might soon be played using an HDMI output, so that you can enjoy those 8-bit games in Full HD glory. This is made possible thanks to the crowdfunding project known as HDmyboy, where it is the brainchild of both Zane Amiralis and Joshua de Haan.
The HDmyboy would tap into the digital signal deep within the Game Boy, resulting in amazingly crisp graphics. So far, the project intends to 65,000 Euros ($80,000) so that the manufacturing process can begin, where backers who fork out $125 would be on the receiving end of the HDmyboy, which will be accompanied by a replica NES controller. Those who would want to pick up the prototypes can do so for $350 a pop.
With the HDmyboy, games will be presented in 1080p Full HD as well as 720p, with two modes to choose from. Scale would have the same ratio as the Game Boy screen, while Stretch is a full screen mode that redraws the graphics slightly wider. Anyone interested?
