The Gameboy is back, well not how it seems. For starters, this thing in minute! Small enough to be attached to your keys, it was made by Jeroen Domburg, a Dutch software and electrical engineer. This Gameboy clone initially got viral back in 2016.
The device is now officially called the PocketSprite, and is the world’s smallest playable emulation device. Joreon wanted to make the device a DIY for all customers, but has since decided to monetize his Gameboy. Don’t be mistaken by the PocketSprite’s size, it makes up for it more than enough in its features.
