Nintendo Game Boy Color Watch

Nintendo Game Boy Color Watch

We think the original Game Boy watch is the bees’ knees. But if you’re more of a ’90s kid, check out Firebox’s follow up. This officially licensed Nintendo watch is based on the blue Game Boy Color. It makes the handheld’s sounds when you press its buttons.

Restoring a Game Boy

Gadgets from the 1980s were lots of fun, but the plastics they used back then had a tendency to yellow, and look awful over time. Watch in awe as Odd Tinkering takes a grubby old Nintendo Game Boy and makes it like new. That soldering iron trick to fix the lines on the screen is nifty.

Nintendo Game Boy Watch

There have been several officially licensed Nintendo Game Boy watches, but we think this one is among the best. Not least because it’s still available for purchase. The watch uses the Super Mario Land theme as its alarm sound and its buttons are used to set the time and date.

Freakersneaks made limited-edition Air Jordan IVs themed after the Game Boy and one of its classic games, Super Mario Land. The sneakers feature a pressable d-pad and buttons on the heel, and a Game Boy cartridge as the tag. They cost a crazy $1,350, but still sold out.

Game Boy Alarm Clock

Wake up to 8-bit tunes with this officially licensed Nintendo Game Boy alarm clock. It looks and feels just like the real thing, and plays Super Mario Land sounds when the alarm goes off. It’s powered by two AA batteries and has removable feet.

YouTube user MrSeberi shows us how to make beats on a Game Boy. Not chiptunes though – this one’s purely analog, no software needed. Just the gadget, a bunch of carts, and a bit of imagination.

Game Boy Soap

Lather up and scrub off your game-sweat with this soap from Two Eggplants that looks just like an original Nintendo Game Boy. For some reason we couldn’t get our copy of Tetris to play on it.
